On the main road, bicycles are often parked on both sides, occupying a space of 3 to 4 meters, which seriously affects the speed and capacity of vehicles, and has a greater impact on traffic when accessing bicycles. On both sides of the main road where the sidewalk is set, the sidewalk is often occupied to affect the traffic, and at the same time, it also affects the safety of pedestrians. Therefore, it is necessary to plan and design reasonably according to the user's use time, access convenience, safety and other aspects.

1. For bicycles that stay for a long time and have a large amount of stay, bicycle sheds or lock boxes should be set up in the surrounding sites; if there is no surrounding site conditions, tree arrays should be planted on the original green space, and bicycle racks should be set up to form ecological bicycle parking spots; For bicycles that stay for a short time and a large amount of time, the frame is mainly designed according to the surrounding site conditions, and there is little or no bicycle shed.
2. Bicycle parking facilities are an aspect of static traffic, not just a modeling issue, but are closely related to urban traffic, landscape, and human behavior patterns.
