And now a better bike corral . . .

A functional bike corral on Aspen Avenue.
After my brief, sarcastic bike corral rant, I think it only fair to share a local example of a well designed bike corral.  I like the way it's positioned on the sidewalk. 

With lots of room for other bikes.
Each section is placed far enough from the next to allow for two bikes to be set inside without too much difficulty.  I also like that it's next to a bench and an informational kiosk.  Just seems sort of welcoming.  Another identical bike corral sits directly across the street in front of a restaurant, Mountain Oasis (try their Pumpkin Pie Soup for super yumminess!) with outdoor seating.  Nice.

This shows how easy it is to do it right. Put the rack where the bikes locked to it don't interfere with pedestrian traffic, mount them solidly so that they are, indeed, secure, mount them so that bikes can be locked to them effectively (instead of cabling the wheel to a ladder, only to come out and find a bent wheel and nothing else).

Glad someone near you has figured that out!

Ahhhhhh....Much better!

Definitely good spacing there. I STILL need to lock up to a gas meter at the book store. Arrgghhh!

Yes, Lounger, pedestrian space should not be intruded upon.

Ben,how demoralizing for you. A gas meter. At least I get to lock up to a "no parking" sign where I work. Naturally, the sign is referring to cars, not bikes.

Ben said...

I am just waiting for that moment, when there is a gas emergency, and i find my bike lock chomped by a huge clipper of sorts, laying next to a fire truck. In the interim, I'm waiting for management to complain, so i can direct them to a catalogue of bike racks.

Now THAT'S how it's supposed to be :)

You have a rich fantasy life, Ben. Perhaps an urban sketch of the imagined scene would be in order.
