I live in >a "biking town" (Davis, CA), but Copenhagen clearly puts us to shame. A number of the cohousing communities we visited way back in 1999 had bicycle parking rooms or sheds. For example: http://l.cohousing.org/dk99/tourpix/JE_bikerm.jpg Ideally such things have a separate or easy access from outdoors. I think many buildings in Europe (wich is generally way ahead of us in biking) have bike rooms. Do any US communities have bike parking rooms?

Here in Minneapolis more and more stretched frame bikes that have more room to carry things on the back are showing up. Recently I realized that the recumbent bike I've been riding for about a year ( see http://fholson.cohousing.org/bicycles/sunez5.jpg ) has potential for carrying more because the pedals wont bump into things suspended from the rack. I have yet to develop this potential. FRed -- Fred H.
