Building for Bikes

Friday, Dec. 2 | 10 – 10:30 am PST

Most real estate projects require bicycle parking, and whether you see bikes as a competitive advantage or are just starting to think about where to put those racks, you have to build for bikes. Whatever the project — big or small — we want you to get it right!

Join Bikes Make Life Better Founder Kurt Wallace Martin in a 30 minute discussion of why and how to design end of trip bike facilities for any budget. 

We’ll present bike parking and amenities concepts for commercial, residential, and mixed-use projects. Half the time is reserved for Q&A, so bring your questions.

Kurt Wallace Martin

Founder & Director

Bikes Make Life Better

Kurt co-founded Bikes Make Life Better from a personal passion for cycling and business efficiency. Kurt designs and consults on bike infrastructure, including end-of-trip bike facilities, bike shop design/operations and private tech-enabled bike fleets and has had a hand in nearly every project the company has been engaged in. Prior to founding Bikes Make Life Better, Kurt managed business IT for the C-suite at Ford headquarters and ran a design firm for large university student unions. He lives carfree in San Francisco, and rides for transportation, sport and recreation. Like the rest of the team, he knows what encourages and discourages people from riding and infuses this knowledge into everything he does.
