Default Lloyd Center bike parking?

Can anyone recommend reasonably safe/secure bike parking in this area? I have a job prospect in Beaverton. I'm not optimistic that I'd be able to get my bike on the Max everyday. I doubt lockers are available (though I still need to check.)

I wouldn't mind springing for a paid parking spot since it might be supervised a little better.

This map is pretty awesome but it doesn't evaluate sites.

BorgB, the TMA site says they rent lockers ($15/mo) so that would be the way to go for security if they have any available. The City also has lockers in the downtown, convenient to MAX.

Can't speak to the security of the bike racks, either Lloyd or downtown. I like racks located near to a parking attendant, figuring this will cut down on illicit activity...or not. Go with the combo U-lock / cable lock method if theft is a worry.

good luck!

Back when I worked near the Lloyd District, there were bike lockers in the parking structure south of Halsey, between 7th & 9th. I don't know if they were available for general public or just for local workers.

The Lloyd TMA should be able to give you some answers. Call 'em and ask 'em.
