Montreal Bike Parking
This is a post about Montreal bike parking.
Secure winter bike parking. These bikes aren't moving until spring arrives. And we don't want to hear any complaints about how it is too hot in summer.
Fallen down bike parking. It's ok to lift the bike back up as a favor to humanity.
Winter is the loneliest season for bike parking
This bike is clearly camouflaged, thus preventing bike thieves from noticing it
Who needs a lock when you've got a dog to protect your bike. Hey, where's the bike?
To a casual eye, this looks like bike parking, but to the trained eye, this location screams UNSAFE! Why is that? (Hint: stripped bike frames, isolated location, and did we mention: completely stripped bike frames?)
Bike parking, on the east side of the excellent Jean-Talon public market. Frankly, the JTM needs a lot more bike parking.
A more ferocious looking bike guardian. Note the rim-bender type bike rack tied to the dog, maybe fido is there to prevent you from damaging your bike wheel in this grossly-inferior design for bike parking.
Extremely bad bike parking: blocking the handicapped ramp at PA supermarket. Bad bike riders.
Bike parking, protected by a giant cartoon rodent, which seems friendly enough.
This on-street bike parking is still missing it's bike racks, a mere two months the racks are supposed to be installed.
The sign helpfully tells you to stop parking your bike after 1 november. Sure, you can ride all you want... but just don't park.
The protective barrier for the bike parking is happy with its life
Confused? (Note the custom fender, a subject for a future post)
Parking post bike parking. Note the little bike icons telling you stop here, park, relax, enjoy life.
This parking post is not for bikes. Note the color-scheme difference from the bike-parking friendly parking post above.
Some cyclists try to blend their bikes into the natural surroundings. Is this a bike, or is it topiary designed to look amazingly like a bike?
The flowers on the handlebars make us think of summer. Summer, when this camouflage would be a lot more effective.
Speaking of effective camouflage, this bike completely blends in with its surroundings.Maybe a little too well.
