Bicycle parking is available at various locations around the City in the form of bike corrals and racks. Citizens can also request a new bike rack or report maintenance concerns.
City Bike Racks
Public bicycle parking along road right-of-way is provided throughout the city and typically occurs along major commercial roads like Whyte Avenue and Jasper Avenue and near businesses or institutions.
Toggle the "Bike Racks" layer on the Bike Route Disruptions Map to find bike rack locations.
Post-and-ring style racks can accommodate up to two bicycles.
Request or Report a Bicycle Rack
You can request a bicycle rack, report a rack in need of maintenance or report an abandoned bike.
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.
Locking Your Bicycle
How to correctly lock your bicycle:
- You can lock your bike to a bike rack or any City of Edmonton sign post or parking meter unless otherwise posted.
- Ensure that you lock your frame and wheels securely to the bicycle rack, sign post or parking meter.
- Remember to secure any easily removable parts like seat, lights and front wheel.
