There are a lot of people out there who think that bike racks have nothing to do with green building, and still spout the canard that "you can get a LEED point for a bike rack" which you can't. Well don't bash the bike rack, because as Building Green recently noted in their awards, " providing conditions that induce 5% of your employees to commute by bike saves as much energy making the building itself use 5% less energy."
However proper bike infrastructure is more than just an outside bike rack; it's what Australian company PFL Spaces call "End of Trip facility (EoT) space"- from racks to lockers to showers, all those things that make it easy for a cyclist to securely store their bike indoors and then get changed into work clothes. However, while bikes take up a lot less space than a car, they do take up expensive real estate and there have been lots of attempts at double-stacking them. This means usually that someone has to lift what could be a heavy commuter bike up to above head height and stick it on the rack, which isn't easy.
It is a clever, easy to use design. Now distributed through their Portland Office, Richard Morell demonstrated it at Greenbuild in Washington with some style:
And here is their much more professional video:
