Bicycle parking means business. Studies show that businesses with bicycle parking near their storefront get a measurable sales boost.

Business owners without bicycle parking near their shop or office could qualify for a rack — provided and installed for free by the City of Rockville — under the city’s Bike Rack Grant Program. Learn more about the program and find an application by visiting www.rockvillemd.gov/bicycling and selecting “Bicycle Parking.”

Residents interested in seeing bicycle parking at specific locations can direct business owners to the website. For more information, contact Rockville’s bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, Alyssa Roff, at 240-314-8527 or bikeways@rockvillemd.gov.
