    Bike parkiing-Dya see any problems here,

    Bicycle Parking Network

    I believe Toronto is looking for some bike parking lockers/boxes but I watched the video on this site, and there just might be problems with this one.

    Didn't we get some demonstration locker/boxes somewhere downtown? About a year or two back? I never heard another word on that initiative. Please tell me they worked well, and met the needs of many cyclists.

    What we have so far in Hamilton is two big lockers downtown, one at City Hall and one at HECFI. Inside of each, there are a number of vertical racks where you can lock your bike (not ideal for my cargo bike, ). The door is operated by a key fob that you "rent" from the City for (I think - I got mine for being on the Cycling Committee) $50/year.

    Not perfect but pretty good, IMHO.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    Maybe that anybody over 40 has difficulty operating a cellphone. Or, if you're with Rogers you'll likely have no reception right beside the locker. Other than that, not sure?

    I can see a few homeless guys asking if they can borrow

    your cell phone for a minute.
    Or maybe a rider forgets to close the door.
    Or about 6 inches of ice and snow in February when your bike is locked inside and ya just gotta get home.
    Or a bottle of Jack, and an ipod for those thirteen years old that usually sit in my car to stay warm.
    or

    I'm 40, angry, big, fat, beligerent and would really like nothing better than the opportunity to bite the face off a mugger. However, I can see these lockers being a mugging hotspot for those less inclines to a good "dust up".

    That would be me
    Also applies to any sort of remote.
    Iíve read (somewhere) that the lack of secure bike parking is the biggest deterrent to using a bike for transportation (shopping, work, etc )
    Iím actually waiting for a place like this to open up here in Toronto ...

    And if youíre ever in Bristol, the food in the restaurant is really, really good. And they serve Bath Ales. Awesome beer.
