This week, as part of our Bikability campaign, we asked readers to share examples of good (and not-so-good) bike racks in their communities. Strong Towns believes that providing secure bicycle parking is one of those small, incremental actions that have a disproportionately large impact.

We received a variety of photographs, ranging from basic and utilitarian, to the whimsical yet workable, to the downright questionable. Here is a selection of some of your submissions:

Here is an email submission we received from Dunedin, Florida created by a team at the Institute for Creative Arts. It is part, along with the adjacent crosswalk, of the Pinellas Trail, a popular Rails-to-Trails initiative thatruns right through downtown Dunedin.
