Off-street parking facilities must include a minimum of one secure bicycle parking space for every 20 motor vehicle parking spaces, with a minimum of two bicycle parking spaces. Each inverted U-shaped bicycle rack counts as two bicycle parking spaces.

Bicycle parking facilities must meet the following requirements:


Off-site bicycle parking facilities may be provided for state offices and other state facilities. Off-site parking facilities must be designed with the same degree of monitoring and weather protection as off-site automobile parking facilities.


On-site bicycle parking facilities must be at least as close to the main entrance of the primary use as the most convenient one-third of the automobile parking.


On-site outdoor bicycle parking must be visible from the public right-of-way or from within the building. With permission of the city engineer, bicycle parking may be located in the public right-of-way.


Bicycle parking may be provided within a building, provided that the location is easily accessible and signed for bicycles.


Where motor vehicle parking spaces are monitored, covered, or weather-protected, bicycle parking spaces must be provided on the same basis.


For purposes of this part, a secure bicycle parking space must include a bicycle rack that permits the locking of the bicycle frame and one wheel to the rack, and supports the bicycle in a stable position without damage to the wheels, frame, or components.


Bicycle parking facilities must be anchored to prevent easy removal.
