CELL PHONE PHOTO: 14 Bikes, 1 Parking Spot

If you walk by in Union Square and in Davis Square, you'll see something new on the street: a bike corral.

The corral takes up one parking spot, but it provides space for 14 bicycles.

According to the Somerville Bicycle Committee, a third bike corral is soon coming to Ball Square, too.

Bike corrals are popular in other cities, and according to the bicycle committee they help support local business by offering easy-to-find bike parking in bike-heavy areas, while keeping sidewalks more clear for pedestrians.
