Test of On-street Bicycling Parking

On Friday evening, August 29 Asheville on Bikes (AoB) set up test on-street bicycle parking in front of King Daddy’s Chicken & Waffle.

If you were at our June meeting you heard Mike Sule from AoB and Barb Mee, City of Asheville Ped/Bike Planner talk about the possibility of installing some permanent bicycle corrals along Haywood Road. Many businesses expressed interest in this idea, but were curious to see one in action.

The AoB test coral was only up for a few hours, but was overflowing with bicycles. Twelve to fifteen bicycles fit in the space allotted for one vehicle and  pedestrian sidewalk right of way was preserved by moving the bike parking to the street. Win for all.
