Install Sidewalk Bike Racks For Visitors & Guests

What Is It?

Sidewalk bike racks are bike racks outside commercial locations for visitors and guests to use for their convenience. They often have an aesthetically pleasing design to help them blend into the cityscape, and can enhance the outdoor appearance of commercial real estate.


Having sidewalk bike racks outside of the building for guests and visitors is a great way to encourage your guests and visitors to use multimodal transportation. By having a bike rack for guests, a building can cut down on parking space and car use as well as benefit the companies who do not use parking lots, especially in the downtown areas.
