New Teriyaki (?)
July 26, 2011

Yelm & College, Lacey WA I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this location before, but I thought it was worth showing an attempt to park two bikes here. (The other bike is my Townie, borrowed by my sister in from out of town.) [Aug 5: just noticed that the photo didn’t upload. hrm.]

TwinStar Credit Union
July 22, 2011

Yelm & College, Lacey disclaimer: I work for TwinStar, but this blog has no relationship to my employer. Also, this is not the location where I work. Every bike lockup in this whole shopping complex is terrible. This one, although with a clever ramp approach, is no exception. I guess I should give it points […]

Couldn’t they have put up one more shelter to go over the bike parking?

Lilly Rd, Olympia I posted this earlier, but this is in actual rain. And where I thought would be sheltered, wasn’t. At least my saddle stayed dry! Note the soaked-through gloves and the puddle┬áin my Xtracycle bag.

Bike Parking in Amsterdam
July 8, 2011

A quick link to a post about bicycles in Amsterdam – Fietsen Van Amsterdam – which is mostly about the bicycles themselves, but has some interesting photos of bike parking at the beginning. Wow. Not a lot of cover, but amazing capacity. And check out the striped parking at the grocery store!

At the river
July 4, 2011

Deschutes River at Chehalis-Western Trail. It’s not that one really expects good bike parking on the trail, but it does illustrate a basic bike parking concern. The cars that park out by the road are basically self-securing, but bicycles really need something to be attached to! And even then, I get a little nervy having […]
