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)
Bike parking in EU buildings
EUCG have successfully campaigned for a number of parking infrastructure improvements in the EU institutions. For example, bike racks, which allow cyclists to attach their frame to the rack in the ORBN building, improvements to the garage floor in building G-6, re-allow to bring folding bikes into the office.
We continue to lobby for…
- pumps attached to each bike rack;
- easy access to showers (see list of showers in most buildings) and lockers;
- better maintenance of service bikes and more flexibility in their use;
- equal treatment of all modes of transport for Commission staff.
