The CycleSafe CyclePort Bike Shelter is a modular system that is expandable to provide on-demand covered bicycle parking for your unique needs.
A single CyclePort Bike Shelter can have 2 top panels or 3 top panels, depending on the number of bikes to be parked under a single unit.
Whether starting with a 2-top or 3-top bike shelter, a single bike shelter is just the beginning. The interlocking top panels of the CyclePort Bike Shelter enable the shelters to be expanded, creating rows of space-efficient covered bike parking.
Bike Shelter Starter Unit
The first shelter to begin a row is called the Starter Unit. The Starter Unit has four legs made of heavy-gauge steel tubing protected with a polyester powder-coat finish.
Bike Shelter Adder Unit
Because the CyclePort Bike Shelter is a modular system, units can be interlocked, side-by-side. To create a row of shelters, you’ll need to connect an Adder Unit to the Starter Unit. An Adder Unit has 2 fewer support legs, and interlocks with the Starter Unit to form one integral structure. Adder Units cost less because they have fewer legs.
Expandable Bike Shelter Row
Each bike shelter top panel can cover 2 bikes with Classic Bike U Racks, so a 2-top stores 4 bikes. What if you want covered bike parking for 12 bikes? Simple – you start with a 3-top Starter Unit, and then add a 3-top Adder Unit for a row of space-efficient bike parking.
Side panels for the CyclePort Bike Shelter are also modular. Each shelter can have 1, 2, or 3 side panels. Side panels provide additional bike protection, and opportunities for promotional graphics or transit communication. Side panels can be specified with polycarbonate, solid steel or ABS.
Bicycle racks well suited for a modular bike shelter include the Classic Bike U Rack, the decorative Vintage Bike Rack, the vertical WallRack Frame, or double your bike parking in the same footprint with the two-tier Hi-Density Bike Rack.
