Contractor: City of Rutesheim
Bicycle parking system: WÖHR Bikesafe 885

With the intelligent bicycle parking system, WÖHR provides a solution for cities, municipalities and communities to help make cycling more attractive as a means of transportation, and the storing of bikes safer and more practical. The Bikesafe by Wöhr creates 122 additional parking spaces in the eight levels of the approximately 11.80-metre-high tower, on a base area of just approx. 37 m². In this way it provides a compact, theft-proof housing of bikes with minimal use of space.

The Bikesafe at the Rutesheim Education Centre has been given a facade of aluminium panelling in white aluminium and signal yellow – fitting for its surroundings. Individual facade designs are also possible, naturally. The city’s flagship project for sustainability and environmental awareness is sponsored by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. Creation of bicycle parking facilities is eligible for subsidies of up to 50%, depending on the federal state.
