Bicycle Parking

Bicycle parking is an important component in planning bicycle facilities and encouraging people to use their bicycles for everyday transportation. Bicycles are one of the top stolen items in most communities, with components often being stolen even when the bicycle frame is securely locked to a rack.

Recreational bicyclists Bicycle Parking Ordinance
The Riverside Municipal Code states that businesses may install bicycle racks on sidewalks in front of their place of business after securing a permit.

In California, bicycle parking facilities are classified as either Class I or Class II facilities.

  • Class I Bicycle Parking are long term facilities that have lockers or bicycle cages that can be locked by the cyclist. These facilities are used mainly by students, employees, residents, and others expected to park for more than two hours.
  • Class II Bicycle Parking are short term facilities that include bicycle racks. Cyclists provide their own racks to secure bicycles and these facilities are used mainly by shoppers, visitors, messengers, and others expected to depart within two hours.
