Dear everybody,

Does anyone have any experience with the bike parking at PDX? I'm flying to LA for about 4 days next week, and ideally I would like to ride my bike to the airport and leave it there until I come back. I figure that open but covered parking would probably be okay as long as the area is fairly secure, but does anyone know if there are bike lockers nearby? Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated, even if you just think I would be better off taking the MAX from downtown or something. Thanks.

Hi comrade,
Here's a few BikePortland.org posts you might be interested in.

Back in September I used the new PDX bike path and bike parking structure:

Then I heard it was "for employees only":

And in response to that post they just recently added some space for the public:

And here are some more photos (http://bikeportland.org/wp-content/plugins/falbum/falbum-wp.php?tags=pdx).

I would highly recommend riding to PDX. The location of the enclosed bike racks is highly secure. Hope it goes well.
