      Elly Blue rounds up the facts on bike parking and its vital place in
      city planning.

      A quote:

      > Take the example of Fort Worth, Texas, which recently paid just
      > over $12,000 to purchase and install 80 new bike staples in its
      > Near Southside shopping district, (thanks to Fort Worthology's
      > Kevin Buchanan for the tip). Each staple holds two bicycles, so the
      > total cost was $78 per space. An additional $160,000 is being spent
      > to restripe the streets in the district, replacing two car traffic
      > lanes with bike lanes. According to Buchanan the changes have
      > resulted in a nearly 200 percent increase in business for
      > restaurants on the district's popular Magnolia Street.
