The Ultimate Bike Rack Guide for Schools

Bike Racks for Spring: School Fix Catalog 2017 New Product GuideFor schools, bike racks play an important role in organizing and storing student's bikes. Perform an evaluation of your current bike racks including what condition they're in, is the bike capacity enough, or maybe you don’t have bike racks yet. Whether you are looking to replace, add on, or this is a first-time purchase, now is the perfect time to shop.

When shopping for bike racks, there are several considerations to take into account. First, how many bikes, on average, will the rack need to hold? Second, where will the bike racks be located, such as in front of the building or by the playground? Finally, how will they be installed? For example, will you want them to be portable so they can be removed and stored easily during cold weather, or something more permanent such as surface mounted or in-ground mounted.

Knowing the answers to these questions will help you narrow down which bike racks will be best for your school, facility, or park. We have many options for you to choose from, so we’ve put together this guide to help you make an informed purchase. Below are three popular styles of bike racks, all available now at School Fix Catalog, so let's get started!
