Parking for the People

Bike parking is a scare resource that can be hard to find. I feel lucky when I find any dedicated bike parking at my destination. More often than not I’m forced to lock to a parking meter or sign post. Not optimal.

This weekend we ventured out to a mall that has virtually no bike parking. I’ve been told that there’s some spots in one of the parking garages, but I’ve yet to locate it.

Imagine my surprise when I found these super cute racks RIGHT OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR?! You go LL Bean! Look – they’re racks that look like little people!

They even have shopping bags!

While I’ll settle for basic bike accommodations, these racks reminded me that bike parking can spur public art installations. I hope to see more creative parking in the future!
