Abstract

Active transportation research often focuses on the environmental, eco nomic, health, and social benefits of walking and cycling (Dill 2009; Gordon-Larsen, Nelson, and Beam 2005). While there is much literature about how cyclists use and experience bicycle lanes, boulevards, and paths, few studies evaluate cyclists’ perceptions about the security and availability of bicycle parking facilities, especially paid bicycle parking. Much like motorized vehicles, bicycles are more often being kept in parking or storage facilities than cyclists are using them. While the development of cycling networks deserves continued attention, the study of bicycle parking must not be left behind as cities continue to promote active transportation.
