Why do we see more bike rack systems in our streets?

The fact that we can see more bike rack systems than before is mostly due to the new craze for biking in Europe and North America. As the western public is becoming aware of the benefits of cycling we observe a development of public bike racks.

But Europe and America have a different relationship with cycles and outdoor bike racks. If you are keen to learn more about it, feel free to read our article about bike racks.

Public bike racks in North America

For twenty years now the number of cyclers and bike rack systems in North America is steadily growing. According to researchers, the number of north American biking to work doubled since 2000 and in 2012 they were 900,000 choosing bikes instead of a car to reach their workplace. This growth in cyclers number explains the new need of bike rack for outdoor in north America.

Public bike racks can be found predominantly in cities where taking a car is not the quickest solution to go from point A to point B. On the contrary, rural areas where bike rack systems are a scarce resource you will not see many cyclers. This phenomenon has two main reasons, firstly people living outside city centers generally must drive longer distances, furthermore the green trend is essentially an urban thing.

Bike rack systems are answering a demand, and the fewer bikers there are, the less we can find bike racks. Hence the growing numbers of fixed bike racks in gentrified neighborhoods dwelling place of hipsters and college students more open to new ideas.

Secure bike stands in Europe

In Europe, the relation people have with bikes is slightly more different, riding a bike is normal and in some cities, it’s even the norm. Especially in Scandinavian countries where bike rack systems can be found everywhere.

Denmark and the Netherlands are undoubtedly the most cycle-friendly countries of the old continent. You will be able to find public bike racks everywhere and renting a bike will certainly be the cheapest option for tourists to visit. The huge number of bike rack systems across the capitals of both countries enable the locals to ride while it is to go shopping or to go to work.

Danish urban planners designed everything to be cyclers-friendly, each street should have bike rack
systems and bike rack shops are everywhere.

This is the virtuous circle of biking, the more steel bike racks we found, the more we tend to bike.

Different styles of bike rack systems

Bike rack systems have evolved over time, some cities opted for very modern underground secure bike racks and others for simple bike racks. In Japan for example, Eco Cycle elevators enable the Tokyoites to bury their bikes underground and keep the streets tidy. In Copenhagen citizens prefer simple bike racks that will fit the general Danish style.
