Ohrn Words: Bike parking at UBC

Price Tags

I was out on this super-duper day, riding through UBC on my way elsewhere, when this shiny new bike parking structure caught my attention. Within a very robust all-metal cage is the same dual-level rack system used by TransLink at the Main and Terminal Skytrain station. UBC has also installed a small toolkit and pump.

I like the idea of a locked cage like this, but I find that I can’t get my rear wheel into the little structure at the back of the lower rack. I do prefer to lock my rear wheel and frame to something solid, so this rack doesn’t work for me.

I may have to go back for a second look, because I think I see a motion detector in the upper left-hand. If so, in the age of inexpensive digital recorders, this makes sense.
