How bike friendly is your city?
I'm going to start rating how bike friendly certain areas that I frequent alot. There are some places that I almost totally avoid/boycott because of not being bike friendly at all. There's a certain mall in town I don't go to as they never replaced their bike racks when they recently renovated. They claim 2 racks were stolen. Who steals bike racks? Why weren't they bolted down?
How bike friendly is your City? And what can be done to make the places more bike friendly? Will a letter to the mgt that owns these places help? Or is it just a waste of paper? How do you explain to a mgt company that owns a mall for instance, how important bike parking and bike friendly facilties are? I think that they do not care about it and don't think they lose much business. I got to wonder how many bicyclists avoid a place if there is no place to lock their bike.
I'm just getting frustrated with certain things, although the bike is the way I move around and there's no way I'd stop bicycling because of this!
