I suppose the best solution is to have a bike suitable, and suitably equipped for you and your riding environment. I also suspect a full time rider would have different requirements from a recreational rider.
I still don't see how the bike can't be backed in. Angled parking would have the opening to the parking spot facing uphill, right?
Because so much is riding on your tires.
