Does Downtown Seattle Have Enough Bike Parking?

A study of bicycle amenities in Seattle concludes that most of the private office buildings downtown lack bike parking, and other amenities such as showers and bike pumps are almost nonexistent. Public bicycle parking downtown has a better showing.

The Center City Bicycle Amenity Inventory (pdf) study, commissioned by Commute Seattle, says that the demand for bike parking is growing as more people take to the road on two wheels:

"According to a 2009 SDOT study, 2,600 people commute by bike into downtown Seattle, a 15 percent increase since 2007. This upward trend is expected to continue as gas prices rise, more businesses locate downtown and more bicycle facilities are installed."
