PARK(ing) Day at the Farm - 21st Septmeber

Richard Mathews -

Once again Leda and Deicke Richards took part in the annual event – PARK(ing) Day. This was the 5th year that they transformed a 5 space carpark into a temporary green space for the day.  The global celebration calls attention to the importance of open public space in the city.

2012 is the year of the farmer and the green space took a dynamic form of an urban farm incorporating an orchard, a farmer’s stall and a vegetable & herb garden. Leda supported the event through the provision of a compact bike rack for the cycling guests.

PARK(ing) Day was started in 2005 it is based on the idea to transform a carpark into a public space.In 2008 Brisbane participated and featured 40 parks on the day, attracted many people and the media.

The event prompts communities to rethink how our streets are used and sparks conversations about sustainable cities.

Overall the day was a success and the event called for the attention to the importance of open public space in the city and rethink the way we use our streets.

Leda is a proud supporter of the day by providing temporary bicycle parking to participating companies such as Deicke Richards.

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.
