uh.... do we need more bike racks?

In case you've been super busy lately with all-consuming tasks like emptying a storage unit or something, and haven't noticed what is happening in Portland these days, here's an example. See? The city is so bursting with cyclists that we have to resort to extreme measures. The bike parking availability isn't keeping up with the demand. Even so, for most purposes biking is still way more convenient than driving. When you're driving and you can't find a parking spot, you can't do this with your car. How did they do this, anyway? See detail below. I hope they're a single party of three. And if not, I hope party #3 comes out before party #1 or 2. Otherwise numbers 1 and 2 are not going to be in a party mood.

That's great!

We're starting to get a few more riders around here. We converted a few during bike to work week. I think the biggest new group of "cyclists" though, is the poor folks that have been removed from the energy market. They just simply can't afford to buy gas. Lots of WalMart bikes out on the road!

There really are a lot more of us out there these days. I haven't had trouble parking yet, though :->
