So it's Bike to Work Day, but there's not much going on in Salem, it seems, to observe it. A single tweet from Cherriots is the only thing to register. (Is your workplace doing anything?)
Trip-end facilities - parking, storage, even showers - are very real barriers. Here's some recent parking observations. Do you know of other new parking installations, especially good ones or bad ones?
ODOT Region 2 headquarters to pick up some River Crossing materials. There was what looked like a WPA-era building! Nothing fancy, but with pleasing art deco-y touches.
But no visible bike parking near the front!
A bikey acquaintence directed me to the far back of the parking lot, where there was another comb rack.
In the last couple of weeks I've also seen a nice staple rack at Gamberetti's, in plain sight of the diners - but open to the elements. The parking structure provides a large overhang, so the decision to place one there is interesting. Perhaps it is not related to the change in restaurant operators and came to be for some other reason. Does anyone know?
