Bicycle Corrals Coming to Abbot Kinney and Rose!


From our buddy Paul Chavez over at Venice Dispatch:

Four on-the-street bike corrals that will convert automobile parking spaces into multi-bicycle parking hubs should be installed on two popular Venice streets by mid-year, a city official said Wednesday.

The city plans to install a 3 1/2-foot-tall public bicycle corral in a 34-foot long public right-of-way space at 1201 Abbot Kinney Blvd., in front of The Otheroom bar, that can hold up to 18 bicycles. The bike corral would replace current curb-side vehicular parking and a “Two Hour Parking” sign will be replaced by a “Bicycle Parking” sign. Another bike corral that can hold up to 12 bikes is planned for the 24-foot passenger loading zone at 1427 Abbot Kinney Blvd., in front of the Gjelina Take Away pizza shop.

Two similar bike corrals that can provide parking for up to 12 bikes each have been slated for burgeoning Rose Avenue with bicycle parking planned on the street in front of 512 and 519 Rose Avenue.
