Hmm...biking in Sac. Not to be a nattering nabob of negativism (I have had that phrase stuck in my head lately), but do you all agree that it's getting worse? I guess some of the two ways and wider bike lanes have made it better but in general it's just an insane hassle getting from point A to B on a bike.
These new bike rack thingys have gotten some attention around town. I used one the other day at as a locking apparatus it was ok. It's kinda form over function but it works. There are really a lot of poorly designed bike racks out there in the world.
I guess this one is kinda the best we can hope for?
This one is one of the worst kind. These kind of bike racks are installed by people who pretend that we live in a nice world where no one would steal your bike if you lock it by the tire. There are ones like this outside of Records on K on Broadway.
Same with these two below, although at least there are two spots on the end that you can actually secure your bike to. That bottom one is like the one outside Tower theater, one of my most hated bike racks ever! It's great to hoist my old heavy bike up over the top and try to lock it while simultaneously balancing it on the pole.
