Facilitating bike rack installation at the Alexander St. Co-op


The Alexander St. Co-op was up to their eyeballs in poorly stored bikes.

The bikes were hard for members to extract from “the pile” and were only secured by a shared chain. This resulted in a lot of members choosing to store their bikes inside their units instead.

It started out with researching potential bike rack options. For this project, it was a balancing act between affordability, accessibility, and density.

Next, presenting my recommendations to the Co-op Board and members. In the end, density and affordability won out and we went with the “High Density Rack” from Urban Racks.
