About the Program
The City of Edmonton is committed to providing convenient bicycle parking for its citizens.
Public bicycle parking along road right-of-way is provided throughout the city and typically occurs along major commercial roads (e.g. Whyte Avenue, Jasper Avenue) and near businesses or institutions. Post-and-ring style racks can accommodate up to two bicycles.
Request or Report a Bicycle Rack
Considerations for Placement
Where a rack is placed depends on a variety of factors, including making sure that there is adequate clear space from existing street furniture, loading zones and bus stops. Generally, racks should be placed in visible locations close to the desired destination.
Requirements for Installation
In order to maintain minimum pedestrian clear distances on sidewalks, bicycle racks are only installed on sidewalks greater than 1.5m in width, and only on public road right-of-way. Racks must be installed on a solid concrete surface.
Priority will be given to racks adjacent to commercial locations, as opposed to private residential areas.
You can request a bicycle rack or report a rack in need of maintenance through the following pages:
Locking Your Bicycle
How to correctly lock your bicycle:
- Ensure that you lock your frame and wheels securely to the bicycle rack.
- Remember to secure any easily removable parts (seat, lights, front wheel, etc.).
