Parking for 600 Bikes

Richard Mathews -
One of the largest bike parking facilities in Australia was recently completed in Brisbane by Leda’s Queensland staff. The project involved the manufacture and installation of bicycle parking for 600 cyclists. 

The projects builder was Grocon and the site was at 480 Queen Street Brisbane. The end of journey facility provides parking for 500 dedicated bike parking spaces for tenants and a further 100 for visiting cyclists. 

Leda’s CBR2GS dual height racks were chosen by the architect and developer as the most efficient system to cater for such a large number of bicycles. The CBR2GS incorporates a “power assist lift” for the top tier racks by means of an inbuilt gas strut making it relatively easy for cyclists to store their bikes at top level. 

Fortunately the CBR2GS is supplied in kit form as access to the location in which they were installed was difficult resulting in Leda install staff having to hand unload and transport 4500 individual components 150 metres from the loading dock to the end of journey facility location.

Solutions for all your bike parking needs.

No matter what your type of cycling, Securabike aims to provide practical and easy to use bike parking equipment for your arrival at any location. While commercial bicycle parking solutions are a specialty, Securabike also offer domestic racks for your home or garage, temporary racks for sales or hire and even scooter racks for schools. Commercial bicycle parking products include bike racks, bike rails, bicycle cages, bicycle lockers, bicycle shelters, end of journey facilities and accessories such as bicycle repair stations, bicycle signage and clothes lockers.

For over 18 years Securabike has provided cyclists and clients catering for cyclists such as property managers, the largest range of bike parking options available. Cycling has exploded in use in Australia and not all purchasers of bike parking equipment for commercial projects are regular cyclists. Here at Securabike we have tried to make life easy for specifiers such as architects and construction companies often responsible for installing such equipment in projects. Property managers are also regular customers that need to manage and maintain bicycle parking. To this end, our Securabike website and Bicycle Parking Handbook (comprehensive 121 page guide) explains to the A to Z of bike parking requirements including:

  • Security options for cyclists
  • Spacing of parking equipment and bicycles
  • Aisle widths for transit of bikes and pedestrians
  • Vertical bike or horizontal bike storage options
  • Individual or shared cycle parking equipment
  • Double story bicycle racks to maximise space
  • Scooter and skateboard storage (new)

Design is our strength and we can assist bicycle parking projects on layout and spacing options from one to bike to hundreds. This is provided for commercial projects where space is a premium and bicycle parking demand is strong. Securabike often see bike parking facilities over subscribed and the challenge arises on how to fit in as many bicycles as possible, while still providing functional access and usable bike parking equipment. Contact our offices for further assistance on your project and product drawings are also downloadable for specifiers doing their own layouts.
