That's not how I use a bike - sounds more like a car mentality approach, but situations vary. I leave the bike as near as possible to where I want to shop. I then ride it or maybe walk it to the next place. It becomes, in effect, a shopping trolley. Other people who use bikes do the same. Hence the need for cycle stands at various convenient places.brynpoeth wrote:Maybe conveniently on the edge of the CBD is meant , strangely expressed mind
I park my bike once on the edge of town, then walk, often I want to visit many different shops, the library &c. It would be crazy to cycle 100-200 meters, lock the bike again..

My recommendation to anybody thinking of installing cycle stands would be to spend a bit of time observing where bikes are being chained to things like railings and then start your provision there. Installing stands where you think it would be a good idea may be ineffective.
