Parking

Bicycle parking is still underdeveloped and insecure at many trip destinations and lacking in many neighbourhoods where people have nowhere to keep their bikes indoors. Without sufficient, secure and varied bicycle parking, cycling will not become popular.  (Cycling priority 3)

Parking in EU buildings

EUCG have successfully campaigned for bike racks which allow cyclists to attach their frame to the rack will be installed in the ORBN building, and for improvements to the garage floor in building G-6, which now provides better traction and safety for cyclists.

 We continue to lobby for…

  • better maintenance of service bikes and more flexibility in their use;
  • equal treatment of all modes of transport for Commission staff;
  • a pump attached to each bike rack;
  • easy access to showers  (which exist in most buildings) and lockers.

      Dear Bernd, I would take the pump into my bag and never let anything volatile on the big. It may also be related to the location: I can see in our building that People even leave their cycling jackets and helmets at the bike – without particuler Fixing.

    Hi,

    I have parked my bike in the CHARL building in the parking of -2 and it was stolen. I reported it to the security and after going through the surveillance cameras, the couldn’t locate who whole it. And it goes without saying that they do not have any responsibility because they have insurance only for the items belonging to the EC. I had to buy a new one. Do you know if there is any insurance company that covers stolen bikes?

    Cheers

    Chris
