Thanks For Trying, But - Bike Parking Fail

Believe me, I am completely grateful when anybody puts up racks for bike parking in front of their business. I appreciate it even more when it’s a major chain that happens to be a gasoline station – primarily catering to car drivers.

However, I think that the people who installed these racks must not ride bikes with handlebars.  Sure, with some careful contorting of your bike, these are somewhat functional. I just feel that pulling them away from the wall, even just a few more inches, would have made much more sense.

It’s a start. I guess I shouldn’t complain. Right?

Progress – My Walmart Gets A Bike Rack

with 3 comments


This Walmart might have one all along, but I’ve never noticed it. Bike racks have become a rare sight in SUV friendly suburban Texas – probably from the lack of need. In my opinion it works both ways. Provide folks with the proper facilities and eventually they’ll use them.

Still, this is proof that even big retail chains are starting to figure it out. Now it’s time to start filling it up.
