Bike Stations on Wikipedia


Left: McDonald’s Bike Station with Gehry’s Bandshell behind

Thanks most of all to the efforts of this guy, Wikipedia features two nice entries on bikes stations, an introduction to the general concept, plus a list of a few bike stations in the US. I used it to find the photos above and this video (that for some reason, I can’t embed). Given bike stores make much of their income from mechanical services these days (what, with chainreaction, wiggle, universal cycles, pro-bike kit and anyone else I might plug, all taking their sales), I would think any bike shop in a dense area should consider opening a free bike parking station, if at all possible.
