Thanks to Oscar Guzman for the picture of the bicycle parking at the new Marlins Stadium. Lets hope that we see a picture next season of this same lot filled with bicycles! They are going to need way more bike parking to accommodate the folks who will not be able to come by car or ‘transit’.

    I’m actually impressed they even included this. This is definitely the only good thing about this nightmare.

    Sure you can take transit, just wait for the train at this platform:

    You might be waiting 10 or 20 years.

    LOL! I’ve seen that platform at Gov’t Center. I guess it shows that at one point in time our leaders were forward thinking enough about transit to build for the future.

    Why isn’t this bicycle parked in the middle of the bike-rack lot?

    City code requires bike parking, I believe there are 130 racks between the 4 garages.

    I hate to say it, but I bet when the games start up, this parking will be removed and turned into car parking and the bike racks will be mitigated to an outside environment. I especially think this will happen given the inadequate parking situation as a whole.

    Steven: they cant do that per the code…parking needs to be covered.

    I just see it as I see many other potentially good things in Miami… like take the South Dade Busway. People see it there and suggest that they make it a toll road and now we have these studies to actually do just that. I can Easily see them doing the same for the bicycle parking as well… they see it and think “why can’t we park there?” and then some genious comes up with a plan to move it outside under some half-assed cover that was thrown up to make room for cars and still be code compliant.

    I believe as past of the LEED certification of the building, that bicycle parking had to be included.

    Question: Is there any bike-friendly way to actually get to the bike racks, or do you use the same entrance as vehicles?

    This is an opportunity for the cycling community to show that they matter. The City has provided the covered racks in every garage with a seperate entry or you may enter with cars. Let’s see if anyone uses them. Ride the bus, Ride the train and take your bike for the last half mile- Let’s show bicyclist are residents also, bicylist will use facilities if provided, and THEN we can argue for bike lanes on connecting roads; although I would suggest using the neighborhood streets and bypass all the cars stuck sitting in traffic. You’ll be in your seat having a beer and hot dog laughing at the people stuck in traffic.

    sorry urbanism, but that is the same ass backward logic we hear from FDOT all the time. Would you say “lets see if residents use their cars first, then we can talk about building roads for them” No.

    See the latest post on Coral Way. FDOT says there are no pedestrians on Coral Way (which is a lie anyway) so they dont have to do any pedestrian planning. Since when is transportation planning a reactionary exercise? We plan FOR things not in reaction against something.

    a smart urbanist would say, lets seriously beef up the bicycle connections between the stadium and nearby transit stations with bicycle facilities. then work on other routes to/from the stadium.

    I have no doubts that in an ideal world, where there is a protected greenway or cycle track leading from downtown/Brickell or the Gables to the stadium (or anywhere), that the rates of cycling would increase exponentially. Just like the Cherry Creek path in Denver – sunken, separated from cars, it’s a virtual bicycle highway. Before it existed, people were hesitant to traverse the entire city grid on two-wheels due to safety concerns. There was no ‘traffic study’ needed to realize that it was a good idea. People will ride given a safe, enjoyable route.
