Learn about the essentials of bicycle parking in just three hours! The Bicycle Parking Short Course explains how to successfully plan for, select equipment, and install bicycle parking on a community or campus level. APBP is the nationally recognized, leading resource for guidance on bicycle parking. Attendees receive a copy of APBP's new compact guide, Essentials of Bike Parking.

This session is for St. Louisans not attending the full conference. Early bird registration rate is in effect through 9/24 ($35; $15 for students). At the door: $70; $30 for students. (Students must present proof of status at the door.)

Delve into bicycle parking and APBP's new compact guide during this training session. You'll learn to:

1) differentiate the priorities of short- and long-term parking
2) choose an appropriate site and amenities for various kinds of bike parking installations
3) understand the implications of various installation surfaces and techniques
4) determine whether various rack types meet performance criteria
5) understand the relative strengths of various rack materials and finishes
6) properly site racks in a sidewalk or parking lot setting.

The session also explores specific bike parking scenarios including transit, campus, and municipal applications. Participants take part in interactive exercises such as designing a bike parking arrangement for a major community event, responding to a request for additional bike parking on a busy commercial street, and preparing a bike parking plan for a private multi-family development.
