Don’t you wish Columbus had done something similar with one of it’s new downtown parking garages though?
en Route to a bike station (or two) in Cleveland

Last week, I had the privilege of joining a delegation of Clevelanders on a trip to Chicago to tour and learn about the McDonald’s Cycle Center in Millennium Park. This innovative bike station features indoor parking for 300 bicycles, shower facilities, a supply and repair shop, as well as playing host to a rental and tour business. The endeavor has been very successful in Chicago and our group learned a lot about how the facility was designed and operates.
Why were we there? Because the City of Cleveland will be building its first bike station downtown later this year in one of the Gateway garages. UCI also plans to incorporate a station into its Mayfield Road Lot 45 development, a location that can serve Little Italy and University Circle residents, visitors, and employees and which will be tied closely to adjacent mixed-use developments and RTA bus and rapid facilities.
