Covered bike parking in general doesn't excite me. I ride a crappy bike and if I return to it and the seat is wet from rain, I just wipe it off briefly.
If it's really windy, rainy, or snowy, I guess it's nice to have the roof while you're unlocking the bike, but then you're about to go off into the elements anyway, so why put off the inevitable?
For our taxpayer's money, I'd rather have re-striped existing bike lanes and additional new bike lanes, as well as more regular bike racks.
I wonder if the company that takesa care of the bus stops, JC Decayux (sp?), would be willing to spring for covered parking. Perfect ad revenue spot.
I would pay it but i would pay even MORE, if i didn't have to worry about
my bike getting stolen or vandalized as well.
The secure bike parking @ Millinium park is 1 mile out of my way.
One @ UnionStaion would be GREAT!!
