As a bike commuter, I am grateful that Strava has designed more features for bike commuters. I was recently noticing that there are POIs on the map labeled (P) and I thought to myself how wonderful it is to have bike racks listed as a POI!
Unfortunately, I was very mistaken by this and after a quick look on street view on Google maps, I noticed that there isn't actually a bike rack at that location. This said, after I realized that, I thought I would submit an Idea/feature request for adding bike racks as POIs.
This is a novel dataset as far as I can tell, and to collect this information, I suggest allowing community members to mark locations where there are bike racks available, allowing for them to add the following:
Description: a description of the bike rack (color/general location notes)
Number: the total number of bike racks at the location.
Notes: optional field, could allow for other user input
This would be such an amazing feature and would allow bicycle commuters to have access to a constantly growing dataset of known bike rack locations, saving time/headache/heartache for anyone traveling by bike. Whether for a quick cafe stop on their road bike, grabbing a drink with friends at a bar after shredding up a few flow trails and jump lines on their mountain bike, or anyone touring/commuting by bicycle and intending to grab some lunch or stop at a neat little shop they found along the way, this feature would benefit all of the community.
