§26-264  Access for bicycles.  a  The owner, lessee, agent or other person who directly or indirectly is in control of any building shall make reasonable provisions to provide for access to such building by any tenant, subtenant or person in the employ of such tenant or subtenant when any such tenant, subtenant or person seeks to enter such building with a bicycle.

b.  The owner, lessee, agent or other person who directly or indirectly is in control of any building shall make reasonable provisions to provide for access to locations where such bicycles shall be stored.  Such reasonable provisions may include the designation of freight or service areas or spaces or freight or service elevators, where such elevators exist in a building, for use by such tenant, subtenant or person with a bicycle.

c.  Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions b of this section, no bicycle shall be stored in a manner that violates building or fire codes.  Any such bicycle that is so stored in such a manner shall immediately be removed or made safe and secure.
