City College Gets the Bike Parking Just Right

10 new bike racks at John Adams Campus on Hayes @ Masonic

New concrete pad, landscaping, and perfectly spaced racks

There's a cyclist in those racks!

The previous poorly-designed wave rack and the old-school style shunted to the side

Students and staff at the John Adams Campus of City College have even more reason to bike to classes: cool new parking in an attractive bicycle area close to the building's Hayes Street entrance. The ten new racks designed in the highly-usable and space-efficient "O" shape look especially good on their new concrete pad alongside sharp landscaping. The bike parking is situated near the main entry to the school with lots of entry and exit space.

City College avoided the practical but boring "inverted U" racks rapidly increasing across the city and, thankfully, replaced the perhaps-cute but awkward-to-use "wave" racks that appear all too often even with new projects in town. Nearby neighbor and SF Bike Coalition Project Manager Marc Caswell alerted BIKE NOPA to the new parking. He especially appreciated the choice of racks, "It's the same shape of rack that works so well at Mojo Bicycle Cafe with perfect spacing and angled just right."
