NYC Start-Up Surveys the Market for Bike Parking

bike_stop.jpgAn online survey for a start-up venture called Bike Stop NYC has been making the rounds on local blogs, hinting at the profit-turning potential of bike parking in the city.

The entrepreneurs behind Bike Stop posted the survey "to support their efforts to raise capital necessary to bring better bike parking options to NYC," reports the latest issue of TA's StreetBeat.

Streetsblog has a request in to the Bike Stop folks to see how their business plan is developing. Having taken the survey, I can report that they seem to be considering a mixed-use bike parking facility/repair shop/gym/café.

Sounds a lot like this new place down in Austin. Lance Armstrong, care to invest up here in the Northeast?
