The term ‘bicycle parking’ refers to any parking space designed for bicycles, where one can leave a pedal cycle unattended in reasonable security. In cities and towns, these can often be found in front of shops or along streets; possibly in association with parking for motorized vehicles. Examples of specific forms include covered bike sheds and lockers, simple ground-anchored bike racks, or curvy artistic lumps of metal for chaining your bike to.
How to map
Add a node tagged amenity=bicycle_parking in the geographical centre of the feature if it's just a small number of bike racks close together. Larger areas of cycle parking may be represented with a closed way. You can also map a single open way along the length of the parking if applicable. Don't use multiple together: use only one object per feature.

Cargo bike parking
- Main article: Cargobike
With the rise of cargo bikes, especially in cities, typical bicycle parking systems don't work properly. There are different cities, like Berlin or Stuttgart which offer bicycle parking spots, explicitly for cargo bikes. Tagging of them are not standardized. cargo_bike=* tackles this issue.
