Bike-Friendly Real Estate

A Competitive Advantage

With the climate crisis at a crucial inflexion point; gas prices at their highest in decades; and a pandemic-fueled bike boom, it’s essential to build with bicycles in mind—for commercial, residential and mixed-use developments. 

This includes making bike access, circulation, parking and amenities safe and convenient for commuters, recreational cyclists and visitors alike. Investment in this planning will pay off in the long run as you seek to attract and retain the right tenants. While you know your project best, you may not have the specialized bike and transportation expertise to make key decisions when they matter most. 

The earlier we get involved, the better. But, we can help you at any phase of development—from planning and entitlements through construction to the first day of business—or any phase of renovation. When you’re working on the vision for your property, consider us for a consulting engagement. Or, bring us in at any point for strategic or tactical help. See examples of our work.

We’ve worked with some of the largest most influential real estate developers, architects and property managers in the business. 



Examples of our work:

Bike Access & Circulation Planning

A nationwide real estate developer came to Bikes Make Life Better with a clear and visionary request: create a comprehensive approach to bike infrastructure that will help realize their multi-phase, mixed-use urban re-development project as a vibrant, healthy and active neighborhood.

End-of-Trip Bike Facilities Planning & Design

The owner of a well-established multi-tenant office district wanted state-of-the-art bike amenities for its tenants—and future tenants—so they turned to Bikes Make Life Better for help. Their request: turn a large first-floor retail space into best-in-class bike facilities, including secure bike parking, showers and lockers, and a bike shop.

Bikeshare Feasibility Studies

The landlords of a large multi-tenant office park needed to explore all transportation options to keep up with their rapid growth. Bikes Make Life Better conducted a bikeshare feasibility study to determine if and how to select the right bikeshare system for their evolving needs.
