Default Free airport bike parking

A friend is staying here before flying out for a vacation and told me about the free bike parking and shuttle.

I always wondered about bike parking at the airport as I do a bit of flying for work and didn't feel the bike racks were the safest option. Next time I need to travel I will use this service with my Burley Travoy in tow and let you know how it works. Do you know of any other similar services?

"Bike and Fly

Book online or call 866-716-8143 and ask for rate plan BKR
Bike in and fly out. Aloft Portland is conveniently located next to the MAX line and PDX. We'll store your bike for up to 14 days for free while you're out plus provide a free shuttle to and from the airport.."

i think you are saying that the staple racks are a little out in the open for you? have a trailer? you might want to check out the fenced in bike parking next to the motorcycle parking lot...
