    Bank drive thru's

    Just thought That I would throw this out there, I've heard a lot of negativity about bank drive thru's, but my bank rocks. I opened another account there Friday and thought to ask the lady that helped me if they let bikes go through and she said that they did. I tried it today, and it was pretty cool. They came to the window and acted like it was just an ordinary transaction, no big deal. It was pretty neat.

    I use the drive-up teller at my bank all the time. Never had a problem - mostly the tellers seem amused. I've never thought to ask if it was ok...

    From a prior discussion, I gather it is wise to ask before opening an account.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Hmmmm.......I don't think so ,mate. If I gotta ask to deposit ,or do other bank business, with
    a bank then that bank doesn't want my business no matter what kinda vehicle (bike, car etc.)
    I arrive at their window in/on.


    I will not tolerate any form of discrimination even against bikes.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Just to add some flavor, I got a letter from my old bank telling me I couldn't use the drive up ATMs on my bike. That's why they are my old bank.

    They matched my account information from the time stamp on the security camera.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    I always use the drive up when on my bike. No problems whatsoever!

    But, last time, the teller did ask if I wanted a sucker.

    Sooooo --- I asked for lemon, and got a yeller one....

    I've never had a problem at my bank - however, I do usually take off my helmet so there are no issues with ID.

    Hummmm, don't know why you would want to wait in line behind a pack of cars blowing exhaust at you but each their own I guess. I just chain my bicycle up at the front of the bank and walk in.

    Are we not like other vehicles? No line, just rode up. Besides , I was just offering my 2 cents.

    One of the nice things about being retired, is no lines. I simply go when it's not busy, and take my pick of auto holes.....

    If no line, I wouldn't mind going through drive thru..... Although I think it's lazy of people that cars go through the drive thru, I always walk in even in my car. It's just me I guess. It's also a complete waste of gas for cars to wait at a drive-thru... just our lazy car driving culture I guess. It's bad when I saw a woman walking her dog while driving her SUV the other day..... now that's pathetic.

    Although it's better to use a bicycle drive up window then drive a car in any circumstance.

    I do use my bicycle at the drive up ATM though unless a car is there.

    Anyhow, if you are riding a bicycle for any purpose, you are doing something right.....
