Privileged Parking for cyclists
In addition to the amenities, Ciclocidade prepared another gift for cyclists, offering model paraciclos “inverted U” – considered one of the best and most secure, because it is possible to hold the bike frame, without the risk of damage. Take your lock!
The most common structures, which hold the bicycle wheel in a structure on the ground, are known among cyclists as “warp-wheels”, because a bump in a parked bike can have this result. The bicycle Exchange also runs risk of ruin, bringing a considerable injury to the rider. Learn more about recommended structures for parking bicycles.
