Why is this man smiling? Perhaps because he knows he can get to where he want to be in downtown Flagstaff on time and hassle free because he is on a bike?
Here's bike parking at an always packed pedestrian area just off Route 66 right in the heart of the historic downtown. Bikes are locked up and down the area and into the alleys that run on either side of it. No parking for cars is provided because the pedestrian area is designed for people mixing and mingling over coffee, beer, dinner, and shopping. The bikes add to the friendly, casual and fun atmosphere in a way that cars simply can't compete match.
Criollo Latin Kitchen. Locked our bikes half a block down the street outside the Rendevous where we stopped first for drinks before dinner. Parking was at a premium that night but not for us since all we needed was the nearest bike rack of free sign post.
