Virgina Park Police Sub-Station

Bike rack installed far too close to wall and window. A full size bike with 700cc wheels cannot fit into rack and still have wheel touch ground. This creates potential for bicycle to damage glass and scuff wall during loading and having an unstable wheel can cause bike to fall over while parked, creating potential for damage to bike.

Documenting bicycle parking conditions in Santa Monica. There are some places that address bike parking demand with racks in the city, but many places were demand is much higher than supply or in the majority of cases, not existent. Lack of bike parking discourages making bicycle trips, and encourages haphazard methods to attach bicycles with less than ideal locks.
