Do you mean literally converting parking spaces into bike racks at a ratio of 1:6? That seems like overkill, since a single car parking space could provide many bike parking spots. Also, I worry that there's a good reason why we always see bike parking spots on the sidewalk - is it difficult to anchor a bike rack to asphalt?

But on the other hand: I absolutely agree that every municipal parking lot should be leading by example and providing bike racks - enough to cover a substantial fraction of their visitors being on bikes. And from a cyclist's perspective, locating them in the lot itself does offer some advantages - lugging a heavy trailer up a curb sucks. But on the other hand, locating them at the street/sidewalk or in a lock-up room offers better security than in a less-visible and less-protected parking lot.
