Hi Ron, thanks for your question. Secure bicycle rack storage is measured in yards. Sorry for any confusion. According to the LEED 2009 for New Construction reference guide:

CASE 1. Commercial or Institutional Projects

Provide secure bicycle racks and/or storage within 200 yards of a building entrance for 5% or more of all building users (measured at peak periods)

Provide shower and changing facilities in the building, or within 200 yards of a building entrance, for 0.5% of full-time equivalent (FTE) occupants.

CASE 2. Residential Projects

Provide covered storage facilities for securing bicycles for 15% or more of building occupants.
