We have developed one module that accommodates 8 bicycles, one module for 4 showers, one module for 5 cycles parking plus one cycle workstation and one module with 40 lockers.
A lot of emphasis has been put on getting people to cycle to work, without addressing the challenges faced by cyclists after they have reached their place of work.
Buildings are currently planned assuming employees mainly commute by motorcycles and cars, and not by bicycle in Chennai's searing heat and uneven roads. We propose small changes that can convert existing car parking bays at workplaces into amenities for bicyclists.
Our modular system allows for future growth, as conversions of parking bays will happen one at a time, based on employees' response. We are acble to accommodate 24 cycles, with shower and repair facilities, in an area that would usually be occupied by 4 parked cars. The space freed up this way can be made available for other amenities for employees.
