Last Tuesday we hosted our first official Your Move forum, 'Workplace Bike Parking: Plan, Build, Manage,' all about how to improve workplace bike parking so more people are encouraged to ride for their work commute.
We had two fabulous guest speakers. Jacob Martin from Cardno used local examples, including his own workplace and the Curtin University Bike Pods to talk about some of the challenges faced when putting in workplace bike facilities. He really emphasised the need for great wayfinding signs, for building quality facilities and for including as least some 'frills' such as drying cupboards, bike pumps and water fountains.
Tenille Teakle from Woods Bagot, a global architecture company, took us on a tour of two recently installed, top of the range bike facilities that demonstrated what a difference good design can make to getting ready for work. It seems they'd thought of everything from a towel service to e-bike charging stations, to lost property boxes and in-built hair straighteners and hair-dryers.
