sticking with it

I got the last slot in the bike rack again today. Last Thursday, there were 2 or 3 extra bikes that couldn't get a slot in the rack. I figured the early summer high gas price spurred increase in number of bike commuters would fade by now. People are really sticking with it. The bike rack was rarely half full last summer.

Time to see if employer or building owner will put in a second rack?

They have noticed. A few weeks ago a facilities guy was straightening the unusable slot at the end of the rack with a pair of gigantic pipe wrenchs. It had been hit by a snow plow I guess. He said they had ordered more racks.
