Bicycle Pad for Schools.

I am as we speak trying to lobby the high school that I work for to construct a bicycle shelter for our students. My inspiration increased when I saw the following:

those are becoming more common. It's a little annoying as a parent of a college student that there isn't more covered parking for student bikes. My daughter is really good at finding covered parking, but it's a lot of work. One of those shelters probably costs less than a parking space.

It's about time we've had this type of movement on our college campuses! Now if only you could enthuse, infuse, and proliferate, we could all make universal progress upon all properties that harbor our nation's students.

- Good Luck!

That looks nice. I also wish more covered and more secured parking at stores, etc.

Im curious....how much does a parking space cost? I have no idea what this would be priced at.
