Back Bay Bike Parking

August 6th, 2010

Back Bay bike parkingNew bike racks are going in on Clarendon Street, in the Back Bay. This location is right across from where the Hard Rock Café used to be (empty now), and is very near the new John Hancock building and the Back Bay subway and commuter rail station.

Back Bay bike parkingThe upside of all this parking is that there is certainly a lot of it, it’s in an area with a paucity of bike racks, and the entire area is covered for protection from the elements. Downside is that the entire area is covered because it’s a tunnel freeway entrance for the Mass Pike. It’s a great use of space for a much-needed resource, but beware of “freeway-minded” drivers folks!

    Hey there!
    I live in the South End, and recently got a bike but 3 weeks later it was stolen from under my stoop, behind a locked gate 🙁 I want to buy another one, but I need to find a secure place to keep it, and inside my building isn’t an option… Do you happen to know of anywhere in the South End / Back Bay where I could pay for bike parking?? Thanks Chic Cyclist!
