An unfortunate corollary to the growth in bike commuting has been the rampant growth in bike theft and vandalism. It’s a serious problem that occurs on both public and private property. Concern about parking bikes uncovered and unattended is a major deterrent to using a bike for transportation.
A practical solution to this problem are Velodome’s locking bike shelters. Our BikeGarage, Guardian, Peapod and Peapod Mini shelters have locking doors, are fully enclosed and meet the standards for Class 1 Bike Parking.

For buildings with limited indoor space, Velodome locking bike shelters make stylish outdoor bike rooms and are an alternative to indoor bike storage. Developers, property managers, condo owners, businesses and schools will find our locking bike shelters provide numerous advantages.
Bicycle Stations (aka Bike Station/Depot/Hub) are 24 hour, weather protected and secure bike parking structures. Typically located next to mass transit stops, they are designed to accommodate a large number of bikes for long-term bike parking. They are also used by municipalities, schools and other institutions to provide secure, centralized bike parking.
With the ability to be made in different sizes, the Guardian bike shelters are customizable bicycle stations that offer numerous amenities such as bike pumps, bike repair stands, helmet/gear lockers and way-finding signs. Additionally, third party providers can offer services such as bike rentals, repairs, bike parts and accessory sales.
Transportation planners, transit companies and agencies looking to connect multiple modes of transportation will find that providing dry and secure bike parking is the key to enticing cyclists to bike to a bus or rail stop.
At Park and Ride and other locations where car parking is limited, locking bike shelters can increase revenue, bus and train ridership and frees up precious parking spots for commuters who prefer to drive... and accommodates those who prefer to bike.
Velodome’s locking bike shelters and combination bus/bike shelters accept both stand-alone and networked access control systems. Outfitted with our high security bike racks, they provide bikes with two layers of theft protection and the confidence to leave their bikes unattended while off to work or school.
