Bike Cage Rules, Regulations and Access

 Bicycles are not allowed in the building for safety reasons.  We do provide a secure, monitored bike cage for use by tenants and guests of tenants while on-site. 

Bike cage parking is a privilege and subject to the adherence to these Rules and Regulations.

This bike cage is located on the south wall of the 110 5th St.  building, on the loading dock and has racks to secure your bike and a repair stand with tools for fixing flats and making minor adjustments. 

The cage can be accessed by the stairs on either side of the dock using your authorized Building Access Card provided by Building Management.     

  • You must register your bike with Security for Access Card authorization. 
  • Bikes are parked at the owner’s risk.  Building Management, Hearst Communications, and Forest City are not liable for any damage or loss of your bike, lock, chain/cable, helmet, or parts.
  • Unauthorized or abandoned bicycles are subject to removal at the owner’s expense.


The following are recommended bike locks:

There are  two locks made by Kryptonite and highly recommended; the Mini Evolution U-lock and the New York Fahgettaboutit U-lock.  These two locks are widely considered to be the best in security. The Evolution series is lighter, but the New York series is higher rated. 

Please realize that while these locks are not completely thief proof, they are your best defense and a good deterrent. 




  • Access to the Bike Cage is obtained by completing the Bike Cage Access Form located in the Forms Section at the end of this manual.  All bikes must be registered with Security.

  • Once registered with Security the individual's personal 5M Building Access Card will be activated to allow access to bike cage.
  • There is an access set-up fee of $25.  The fee will be billed to the tenant's company he/she works for. Depending on their policy, the charge may or may not be passed along to you.

  • Any bike in the bike cage that is not registered will be locked up by Security.

  • Everyone entering the bike cage MUST SWIPE THEIR ACCESS CARD even if you are coming into the cage behind someone else who swiped their own card or someone holding the door open as a courtesy.


  • Visitors must check-in with Security and be escorted to the bike cage by a Security officer.  All visitor's bikes must be registered with Building Security.

  •  Visitors will be required to use a designated bike rack to lock their bike using a lock provided by Security as well as their own lock.  


  • The cage door should be locked at all times. If the door is not locked when you arrive, or if you have trouble securing the door when leaving, contact the 901 Mission St. Security Desk immediately at (415) 777 – 7192
  • When using the bike cage please only use one parking loop, positioning your bike parallel to the other bikes.
  • It is critical that you secure your bike with a lock. Do not rely on the cage to serve as the only security for your bike.
  • After securing your bike, it is important that you secure the door when exiting.  Unsecured bikes or doors are an invitation to thieves. 
  • The cage is for temporary parking of tenant bicycles; it is not for long term or permanent storage. Bicycles left for an extended period are subject to removal at the owner’s expense.
  • Locks should not be left secured to any of the racks in the cage. Locks left are subject to removal and disposal.

  • Please respect your fellow cyclist and their bike; failure to do so may cause loss of access to the Bike Cage


If you lose your Building Access Card please contact Security immediately at so your card can be de-activated. You may then request a replacement card through your companies Building Liaison. Your company will be charged a $25 replacement fee.

If you think you know where your Building Access Card is and are able to retrieve it, contact the 901 Mission St. Security Desk immediately at (415) 777-7192 or email [email protected] to have your badge deactivated until you retrieve it.  You will not be charged unless a new card is created for you.  Timely de-activation will prevent unauthorized use of your card, which you could be held responsible for.
