Bike Rack for the Bikeless
Look at this weird bike rack I found outside Wild Oats at Bridgeport Mall. (Is that what it’s called? In Lake Oswego? That hideous shrine to excess? That assault on the eyes?) This is not a bike rack, it’s a sculpture of a bike rack. Not meant to be used – notice no one is using it – because who’s going to risk annihilation to approach by bike a place like this mall, located at the confluence of a couple of eight lane streets and one or two freeways? Ug. One of the most unbike-friendly destinations in the whole metropolitan area. More complaining to come. I’m in a hurry this morning. But if anyone can see a way to actually use such a bike rack as this, do write in. I really do want to know.
