    Usually when I think of somewhere to park my bike I expect something more.. Fill in the blank.

    Two possible headlines:

    City of Saskatoon stealing bikes or

    Bicyclist accused of stealing Saskatoon lock ups

    That was obviously the "quick-release" version...

    The good news is you can take it with you and lock up wherever you need to go!

    That and the color makes me think there's a future companion to Citibike called Citilock. "Protecting your bike better than your credit history!"

    Jeeze, was that intentional, or was there some kind of structure failure?

    The bike racks in the Harbour Landing neighborhood in Regina are pathetic. I'll have to take a picture the next time I'm over there. They are designed to look like grass blowing in the wind. Just curved poles in several sizes (1 to 3 feet tall) with a tiny d-ring at the tip. I doubt you could even lean a bike against them without it falling over. Many are loose and the bolts securing them are flimsy enough you could easily break off the rack by hand.

    Here's a fuzzy one from google street view.

    Just a fancy name for building $600K houses beneath the airport flight path.

    I was curious yesterday when I saw the name so I looked up the website. I was actually thinking they must be joking when I saw the map location compared to the main runway ......
