  Defnition o Bicycle-Oriented Design (BOD): On-site, secure parking, showers, changing rooms and storage, reecting the bicyclist becoming something else at the trip’s end. Research Questions and Method We used a written survey to structure interviews around three questions(1) what are motivations behind the decisions?(2) what are the challenges and rewards for investing in BOD?(3) what types of BOD were chosen? Berkeley Electronic Press (Bepress) • Inside hooks for 11 bicycles• No employee car parking• Management commutes by bicycle• Protection from theft. Brower Center • On track for highest LEED rating• Inll project: exempt from carparking requirements• Showers and changing rooms. 2130 Center Street • Located near the UC campus• No parking (historic building)• 20 bicycle racks in basementstorage room (elevator access)• Will market as “car-free” space.
