    I guess they serve as employment nodes in the area? That way, cyclists can keep their bikes locked up if they want to travel further or if they work nearby.

    They're also city owned property and are staffed pretty regularly.

    That's exactly why they'd chose the subway stations. So people can ride to the subway and then leave their bike there while they're at work/school/etc.

    edit: also, the only camera-monitored bike lockup I know of downtown is at MEC. There are likely others, but that's the only one I know of for certain.

    Really? Have you ever seen the cctv monitors for that/those camera(s) inside? Was any staff member around to keep an eye on them? I've never seen the cameras there but it would be pretty sweet if there was a bit of extra security to make use of.

    There's a guy who's a regular at C.T. - he rides a 2006 Bianchi 9-2-8 lugged carbon frame w/ full Campy Chorus and absolutely adores the bike. Since he takes the bike everywhere and locking it up on the street is obviously not an option, he just shoulders it and brings it in anywhere and everywhere he goes. Obviously this raises the hackles of security guards across the GTA. That being said, I think I'd rather tell security to piss off and a business owner that my bike stays or my money and I leave vs. risk the bike getting stolen or just not being able to take it out on certain trips.

    I empathize with businesses that have to deal with cumbersome objects moving through their store (strollers, bikes I guess) but at the same time I don't use my bicycle as a battering ram and I know the odds of it getting stolen if it doesn't come in with me.

    On a completely unrelated note, what the hell do Wes and I have to do to get some sponsorship money out of you people?! Speak up, we've each got almost two grand to raise! No, I will not make out with him in the bushes for cash ... but I will make out with you.

    Begging is always a good start. Proceed to grovelling. Edge towards debasement, but don't go too far or it will become too pathetic. Being too pathetic engenders contempt, at least in me. I need a glimmer of self-respect to let me know you do have a last vestige to lose unless I pony up some cash or something.

    ps. Why would anyone steal a Lemonde?

    I haven't seen the monitors or anything, no. But I've seen the camera, and there's a sign saying that it's monitored via CCTV 24-7 I think. Probably not actively monitored though I would imagine... but recording. Not really the same thing, but it's more security than your typical curbside post affords.

    Never on a first date or at least not until we've made out. I'm trying to send you money but the page seems frozen in send mode. Maybe I put too much money in.

    I'll start at $0.50 and see if that works.

    Bah. Bike lockers for you to lock up at stations? Useless. Put one on campus and then we'll talk. The whole point of riding is to avoid transiting downtown, or anywhere near anywhere where you could bike.

    Ok enough grouching from me. 3y3f10473r w!11 n3v3r g37 4 p3nny 0u7 0f m3!!!

    Well, I am doing it fixed - so is Somnambulant. The Lemond is just to make out with when no one's looking.

    I think I was talking Friday night at the pub about this handheld traffic guage you could get on the West coast of the US. Well, coincidentally I just saw a blog post about it and found out more information. Maybe I had this conversation at work though, I'm not sure.

    Uh traffic guage? It tells you what colour the light is? I'm still waiting on that cell phone jammer. You didn't say nothing about it.
