New Bike Corral on Spadina

Duncan broke the story (and had a photo) yesterday of the new bike parking corral on Spadina yesterday, even beating out the Toronto Cyclists Union and Spacing Magazine, who were instrumental in getting the new parking put in (their offices are in the adjacent building – 215 Spadina):

This new installation has created 16 much needed parking spaces in the same area that previously hosted 2 cars.  Protected by bright bollards, cyclists now have a safe new place to lock their two-wheelers.

The rack is also a unique design. (Not exactly unique… this rack design is also found in the new St. Clair West TTC station bike shelter – Joe) The front wheel is wedged between two metal brackets that form an ‘anchor’ of sorts for each spot.  The anchor spots, 8 in each of the two new racks, alternate with one near the ground, next to one that is raised in a ‘one up/one down’ pattern that allows bikes to fit better side by side.

City staff say that if this seasonal bike parking pilot proves successful, they will consider installing it in other high bike traffic areas as of next Spring.
