New bike snake parking gets the tick

Bike parking doesn't just have to be a hoop sticking up from the ground.

The new bike parking snake outside Eumarrah Hobart Natural & Organic Food solves the problem of parking easily on a narrow, steep footpath utilising the existing road barrier.

And other new bike parking to hit Hobart includes 14 hoops right at the centre of the Parliament Square development, with two banks on opposite sides of the square, so you can see your bike while having a meal or drink.
