Back in May we shared the sordid tale of how Portland’s newest downtown food destination, Pine Street Market, opened without any bicycle parking spaces.

Now we’re happy to report that not only has new bike parking arrived, but it has come in droves. There are now 36 spaces for bicycles in front of the market. There are nine city-issued staple racks (that can fit two bikes each) in a corral on the south side (Pine Street) and a Biketown bike share station with 18 racks on the west side (SW 2nd Avenue).

We knew this dearth of bike parking wouldn’t last long.

I guess I must be the only one that finds the orange bike racks offensive. Bike infrastructure does not have to be ugly and jarring. Let’s try to complement the environment, not mess it up.

It’s nice to see staple racks popping up here and there, but why in the world are most of the bike racks in Portland uncovered? IT RAINS HERE PEOPLE!! Is it just too costly to build a roof over clusters of racks?

A cheap saddle cover or even a plastic bag works well. Or a nice Dutch bike with a full chaincase, weather-sealed brakes, and internal hub also works. 🙂

Why is the cyclist pavement marking wearing a backpack? I’ve noticed this at a few other cycle lanes around town too.

Because you’ll need a backpack to take your food with you?

Maybe that bike stencil just needs a front basket then.
