    This thread is for discussion about security measures around our buildings that can be an impediment to bicycling and bike commuting to work.

    Some security measures that interfere with riding are bollards and vehicle barriers

    I did a tour of a number of Federal Buildings about two years ago (during a security debate with our building) and offer these photos.

    Dana, thanks for the report.

    One of my issues with security measures, is around security barriers. In many cases there are not curb cuts on either side (before and after) the barriers, and this means riding along a sidewalk until you find a driveway apron or curb cut, or dismounting and lifting your bike over the curb.
