Saw this bike rack as part of a very “put together” front yard in Little Italy. While driveways and garages are the zenith of ugly home design, the creation of dedicated bicycle parking spots like this is certainly something I’d like to see more of:
What I really like about this setup is how prominent the bicycle becomes on this property. It’s an equivalent to a driveway, but you won’t see the bricks cracking, sinking and getting stained with motor oil. The placement of a bike rack out front allows for easy access to a bike, a quick way to take to the streets without having to go into the shed or through a gate. Of course, this access could make the bikes parked here more vulnerable to thieves as well as being exposed to the elements, but hey, I think it looks pretty good.
