Forgive me if this is in an FAQ somewhere, but I'm wondering. The prejudice against bringing bicycles into office buildings seems pretty widespread, but I'm wondering where/why/when/how this prohibition came into being.
I heard one office manager allege that it's hard on the carpets, but I have a difficult time believing this; it sounds like someone somewhere sometime ended up with a track on the carpet and it spread faster than an urban legend.
I've thought about taking the front wheel off and then alleging that all it is is machine parts--yes, it could be assembled into a bicycle, but so could most wheelchairs :-)
Anyone have any solid notion about what this is about, and how we can constructively combat this? It's hard for smaller businesses renting space in an existing structure to get any kind of traction with the building owner to give up oh-so-precious automobile parking for bike lockers, but often times there's plenty of floor space within the rented facility.
