I’m hoping Seattle Bike Blog readers can help me fill out a map of Seattle area bike corrals. I’ve only seen seven of them personally. I knew of one other, and Tom of Seattle Bike Blog tipped me off to two others. There must be more!
In the SBB article I didn’t mention that city to the south that starts with a “P” and ends with an “ortland,” but they’ve got bike corrals up the wazoo (91 as of this writing)! It’s very inspiring. Plus they’re rows of regular racks that are easy for big bikes like mine to use.
We should leave a few spots for cars, of course. Read this brilliant LA Magazine article Between the Lines by Dave Gardetta and see the light.
We have ONE on-street bike corral in Tacoma. It’s at 2914 6th Ave, 98406, directly in front of The Red Hot. It’s huge and awesome and I use it every chance I get.
Well at least we’re ahead of someone! ;) I am putting that on my list for our not-yet-organized summer bike Tacoma adventure.
And we are getting more! 7 more coming on SE Division between SE 11th & SE Cesar Chavez alone (links to their 3 crappy maps here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/61395). That doesn’t count the 2 corrals that I can think of off the top of my head that are already in this stretch of one street.
We’re over-doing it, trying to make up for lack of a donut-teriyaki-laundromat, aren’t we?
SO JEALOUS! Seattle doesn’t do “build it and they will come” unfortunately. I’m sure all those bike corrals will fill up. Sigh.
