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 [...]

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.

Lilly Rd, Olympia Nice spot, plenty of capacity…no cover. (There’s another parking spot on the other side, no cover there either.)

O’Reilly Auto Parts

Bike parking, a photo by Oakwright on Flickr. Perhaps counter-intuitive, but not impossible that someone would want to bicycle to the auto parts store. Looks like one bike is locked to the trashcan, and then the bikes are locked to each other.
