The picture entilted "Parking" is what the parking lot looked like today. JAMMED.

The picture entitled "My Commuter" is my bike... parked excatly 30 steps away from my computer in my kitchen. Never have issues finding a parking spot.... even in rush hour! :)

How sad and overfull parking lot and an empty bike rack in the lower right hand corner.

LOL!!!!!

This is great!

I've actually thought about creating "parking awards" to put under the windshield wipers for such folks.
Passive aggressive, yes, but funny as hell and benign.

They probably just think it's some weird modern art. Chef Isaac should park there once in a while just to demonstrate its purpose.

Not to mention the signposts with no bikes, the railing around the electrical(?) equipment with no bikes, the natural gas meter/pipes on the lefthand building with no bikes, aaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!

I love bringing my bike inside. Since of security really. Where I work is located in Camden, NJ which is the second in crime and homicide on the East coast. Granting we have gates and fences but when you are 30 steps away from your bike, cameras all over the place and the fact that everyone knows that you ride THAT bike, it is darn good security.

There are two other people that ride into work. What the photo doesnt show you is that there is four long rows for bikes :). It is pretty neat that the company does that and I appreciate it but again, I like to bring the bike inside.

chefisaac 02-02-12 04:44 PM

I want you all to understand that yes, I do wish more people rode their bike into work and I REALLY wish the company would pay a little extra for people to commute other ways then cars but I have to tell you all.... Camden is NOT THE PLACE TO RIDE. More people were killed in Camden then any other city by percentage to population then any other city (except one other but I cant remember that one).

Nice ride, Chef. :thumb:

chefisaac 02-02-12 04:45 PM

thanks. Fits me nicely! :)

There is an extremely rude (anglo-saxon) website in the UK - something along the lines of parking like a (your guess is as good as mine;) ) which you might wish to look at

Chef, I like that sign. It probably goes a long way towards keeping your bike from being damaged.

I had a friend who carried arouund a page of those Avery mailing labels that you put on envelopes, with something printed on them about how 'Your parking job in a crowded lot is denying another person the ability to park. Please think before you do that next time.' Apparently they are really hard to get off the window once they set, and the person would have to scrape it off.

At my old workplace, I could bring my bike inside, which was nice because the rack was a good distance from my office and unprotected from the elements. We moved to a new building last fall and I was initially concerned because the powers-that-be determined that no bikes would be allowed inside. However, it hasn't turned out so bad because the bike rack is in a protected area that is screened by the street by a wall, with a security camera and guard with continual surveillance.

Yeah, that IS a really nice-looking bike, Chef!

Exactly which model of Giant bike is that anyways?...Is that a Roam?

- Slim :)

That's cool that you have a private place to park your bike.

Btw, looks like a great commuter bike! Clipless pedals, bar ends, leather saddle, rear rack, fenders.

chefisaac 02-03-12 11:53 AM

Giant Roam 1. Love it!

One thing I am curious about is if I put studded tires on if there will be enough clearance with the fender.

I really like this too! I have pulled my old truck in next to cars that were double parked before, and left less than a couple of inches between their driver's side so they'd have to climb over the seats to get in. Ah, good times!

back in high school I had a friend that drove a Karmin Gia (it was an old car then, I'm not that old). Whenever he found trucks parked over 2 spots, he would squeeze into the tiny space on the truck's driver's side, roll down the top and climb out over the trunk. I would have never put my car in such a precarious position, but I would have given anything to see a video of the truck owners trying to get out of that. :lol: (for some reason, it was always trucks that did this)
