I had a problem with rubbish bins being placed in front of the bike racks when we first moved into our new building. The racks were also placed outside the secure compound. I had a bike stand on my bike so I placed my bike inside the compound away from the bins and where I could see it. I contemplated locking my bike to the fence or to a pole if I needed to park my bike for longer here. I did not want to leave my bike here all day while I was inside working.
After a few meetings with the building manager and other staff, plus completing a customer request form stating my request, the bins are gone. The bike rack has now been removed and placed in a better location, inside the secure compound, under shelter, away from the bins and with good passive security. Bikes can be parked either side of the fence now depending on how much security you would like. Both racks are under shelter. Bins are gone and bikes are starting to appear. Just need to test the new rack location to make sure it has not been placed too close to the wall. I will follow up with bike riders in my workplace and also keep track of how many bikes start appearing, just like this one. I will keep a photographic diary as that is even better than a bike count.
