Bicycle Solutions develops bicycle and pedestrian master plans, feasibility studies, safety assessments and designs (conceptual/schematic) for improved streets, intersections and interchanges.
Since 1999 we've teamed with many of the big names in transportation and infrastructure planning, design, architecture, engineering and construction such as AECOM, Alta, Arup, BKF, Fehr & Peers, Jacobs, Mark Thomas, Parsons, and Walter P. Moore. We also work directly with local agencies on small to medium projects.
Add our expertise, writing and presentation skills, skilled field observations, "handlebar perspective" and knowledge of the bicycle community to your team. We can help you win the work and deliver success and public support for your client's project.
BIKE ROOMS, BIKE CAGES, and large-scale bike parking
We are bike parking experts, specializing in bike rooms and high-density storage for workplaces, multifamily residential complexes, and schools. Our 20 years of experience began in 1995 with 4 years as the first Bicycle Coordinator of Stanford University, where we installed over 3,000 rack spaces and 500 secure commuter spaces. We co-authored the first two editions of the national (APBP) Bicycle Parking Guidelines.
We represent five major manufacturers of bike racks, lockers, bike repair stations and related fixtures. We can help you create the best solutions for your site without tying you to a single vendor, with the convenience of a single point of contact for your entire project. Our pricing is the same as factory-direct.
In the San Francisco Bay Area we've designed and installed bike parking for firms such as Facebook and SurveyMonkey, and many condominium and apartment buildings. We also work remotely with clients throughout the U.S., transforming the client's floor plan sketches and measurements into CAD drawings.
Let us help guide your project smoothly from concept through design, ordering, delivery and installation.
