I Wonder Where He Parks It
The Militant Angeleno took his bike to Dodger Stadium, found the bike parking, but left unimpressed:
On the awesome side, the Militant (who has definitely done this kind of thing before) may or may not have been the first cyclist evar to lock up his bike in the new Dodger Stadium bicycle parking facility (pictured above). The Militant Makes History!
But on the foul side, designed for 20 bicycles (perhaps more if you’re creative enough), this bike rack, known in cycling circles as a "wheelbender" is normally frowned upon by more experienced bicyclists, as not only, as its moniker suggests, do they allow thinner-wheeled bikes to get bent more than a Bart Simpsonesque insult, but if you don’t park your bike correctly, they can leave you with 2/3rds of your bicycle missing.
For a full report, or to bask in the pictures, head over to the Militant’s website.
