If it seems like there are more bicyclists out than ever, you're not imagining it. According to the New York City Department of Transportation’s most recent Cycling in the City report, there has been a 104% increase in daily cycling between 2011 and 2021. Some of that can be attributed to the pandemic, but it shows no signs of fading away any time soon.

Indeed, the city has embarked on a series of infrastructure changes that make it easier and safer to ride a bike. Pre-pandemic, a NY1 report found that below 125th Street and in Manhattan alone, the city eliminated at least 2,330 parking spaces to make way for bike lanes and bike-sharing stations. In September 2021, a new bike lane opened on the Brooklyn Bridge in the first reconfiguration of the bridge since 1950. More recently, the Department of Transportation announced that Prospect Park’s loop path is getting repaved and redesigned for more harmony between cyclists and pedestrians. Add in longer days and consistently warmer weather to come, and New York’s already high number of cyclists is only expected to grow.
Developers and building owners are taking notice and making space for people who might not want to keep their bikes in their apartments. The management of older buildings has found that it is much easier to create a bike room than parking spaces. In some cases, one can be repurposed to make way for the other — when the Richard Meier-designed On Prospect Park was still in the works, the planned number of bike spaces was deemed inadequate. Space from the garage got folded into the bike room to accommodate a larger number.
Moreover, while a zoning amendment passed in 2009 requires one bike space for every two units in new buildings with 10 or more units, some developers are taking it one step further. In addition to providing dedicated bike storage, Circa Central Park has a bike sharing program that allows even those who don't own a bike to take a ride in nearby Central Park. Further downtown in NoMad, Rose Hill’s bike room also includes a repair workshop curated by Strictly Cycling Collective.
