Bike shelters, as their name indicates, consist of more than the simple bike racks that have been in use for decades. While cycle racks offer cyclists a stable structure to which they can chain or U-lock their bicycles, they do not offer protection from the surrounding elements. Shelters, on the other hand, offer a protective enclosure that protects bicycles from wind, rain, and snow.
