If You Build It, They Will Park
This morning, on-street bike parking was installed on 5th Avenue and Park Place, right in front of Gorilla Coffee. It’s only the third bike corral in the city and even though it was only completed within the last hour or so of this posting, it’s already seeing some action as shown in the photo above.
I’m leading a Bike to Work Day ride from this exact spot tomorrow at 8 AM, so come and check it out. Hopefully you’ll be able to get a parking space!
Below are some photos I took of the installation this morning.
Two planters (seen on the truck prior to installation) will protect the bikes and racks from cars.
Bikes on the sidewalk (mine is on the right) will soon be parked on the street, leaving more room for pedestrians.
