Bicycle Garages in Charlottesville – A Great Evolution

In a first (that I’m aware of) in Charlottesville – bicycle garages! **

They just make sense, particularly as the neighborhood in which these townhomes are being built is right in Downtown Charlottesville, is a 6 minute bicycle ride to the Mudhouse on the Downtown Mall.

Bicycle Garages  - http://southern-development.com/plans/woods-burnet-commons/highview/Today’s post made me look back at a post I wrote nearly 8 years ago, in which I responded to a reader who wrote about there being, essentially “two Charlottesvilles” – those who live in the City and those who don’t.

Bicycle garages are evidence of the growing ability to live entirely in the City of Charlottesville if you so choose.

** This might seem like an ad for Southern Development, as 1) I’m a real estate agent and 2) my firm, Nest Realty, represents Southern Development but really, I just think these are cool. I was having a conversation on Twitter about the Burnet Commons 2 neighborhood  and wondered why I hadn’t written about the bicycle garages before.

While not specifically an ad, I do happen to be a Realtor in Charlottesville and I’d answer your call or email if you are curious about these townhomes.

    Great idea! Though I’d probably need more space for all my various bikes and the miscellaneous parts I have laying around 😉

      Agreed … I seem to collect bicycle things. Maybe they have an organization option, too. 🙂

    I don’t know whether I should take this article as serious or a joke. LOL Yes there are more bikers out there but isn’t that why we have closets or hooks on the wall? But I have to agree that a “bicycle garage” sounds much more cool!

      Dead serious. Urban location, minutes to downtown … this is a needed option.
