Safe, secure, protected … bike parking

Kirchzarten, Germany:  At the local banhof (train station) there is a very large bike parking area that is covered from rain or snow.

The rack design looked excellent to me, as it provided a strong steel bar beside the bike upon which to lock the frame.

The overflow parking area also had good quality racks:

I have no clue why the front tire is elevated in these racks:

Kinda made me wonder about the amount and quality of bike parking planned for the new LRT stations in Ottawa.

  1. The elevated front may also be to accommodate bikes with front baskets. It’s a continual annoyance for me to have to hoist the front of my bike up every time I lock up. This design would be a godsend!
