|Not one place to lock a bike up.|
As I am going out for dinner at a restaurant in the above hotel, I decided on my way to the grocery store, that I should stop along the way and scout the new hotel and restaurant out for places to park and lock my bike up. I wasn't expecting a bike rack, but I found the results much worse then that!
There sure was no bike rack, but there also wasn't a street sign anywhere in sight that I could also lock bike on. In fact, there was nothing on that street that looked good to use. I could lock it on one of the skinny new trees, but what is to stop from someone chopping it down to get my bike.
|This is the only place that I found that I could lock a bike up|
I found this fence across the street, which is an entrance to the local tennis club. It is closed for the Winter. The fence is the only REASONABLE option where I can lock my bike, it will have to do. I of course came back after grocery shopping and complained to the Sandman Hotel. I was going to write a big complain piece here, but as they are brand new and the landscaping is not done, I won't, yet. I had bugged the Casino/hotel nearby about the lack of bike parking, but nothing was ever done about it! If they don't put it in, I don't support them! But I will be giving the Sandman the benefit of the doubt this time round. I am lucky to find ANY place to park my bike. I would be so tempted to bring the bike inside the restaurant or hotel, but I don't want to make them mad at me..I should though! :)
|Roads are clear now, but I fell on this part when it was Icy in Febuary.|
|There are still big snowbanks around even though the roads are bare|
On a more positive note, the snow is slowly melting and the roads are clear, albeit dirty. I took my Rocky Mountain out today to shop and to mail my latest Postcrossing postcard, to Austria.
