This year, our networking event for Arlington’s multi-family professionals was held at Oz in Clarendon. Property managers, leasing agents, and regional property managers joined us to meet with other experts in their field and to learn about how to make the most out of their bike rooms.
The chicken and waffle bites were delicious, and the crisp, cool beverages called to mind a sunbaked summer day in the Outback. Here are some of the top three takeaways from the evening.
Your Bike Room is a Premium Amenity
Like other aspects of your community, your bike room was included in the building design to bring value to your residents. When managed appropriately, your bike room could also be the difference in in how a resident gets around.
Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) can help you implement easy processes to keep track of space in the bike room, promote safe bike-locking habits, and routine clean-outs. Your ATP representative can provide you with the tools to kick off any new strategy to keep your bike room running smoothly.
Talk to the Bike Room Experts
A well-designed bike room can help residents feel safe and secure when retrieving or putting away their bikes every day. Make sure your space adequately holds your resident’s bikes and is easily accessible.
Dero Bike Racks can help you plan and design a bike room that fits your building, meets site plan requirements, and matches what Arlington County recommends for bike infrastructure. Together you can create a room that accommodates residents who bike to work in the early morning hours, and weekend warriors who ride just for fun.
