I'm not sure how representative the associated picture is.

Most of this type I have encountered are at railway stations, where they seem to always have roofs and perhaps side fencing or similar.
Thus I have normally used bicycle_parking=shed, but not really tried to record the multi tier system. A simple two_tier=yes might suffice, but maybe rack_levels=1 | 2 would be better.

It would be good to capture covered=yes/no - but this I assume is not in the TFL data (unless it can be derived from individual photographs).
