“Best of Streetfilms:” San Francisco Giants’ Bike Valet Parking

9:00 AM PDT on October 10, 2008

The Dodgers may be the team knocking on the World Series' door, but the San Francisco Giants have set a record that the Dodgers can only dream of.  The Giants provide safe, convenient, and inexpensive bike parking at least 81 times a year.  Ok, recently it's been only 82 times a year.

Streetfilms reports:

A regulation passed by the San Francisco Board ofSupervisors in 1999 states all events incurring a street closurerequire monitored bicycle parking if the event anticipates 2000 or moreparticipants. This only makes sense in a city like New York, too. Why not encourage something like this at Madison Square Garden, Yankee or Shea Stadium? Or at the very least, some quality racks in a secure, protected location.

Can you imagine if the City of Los Angeles would pass a regulation such as this?  I would never drive to the Staples Center again!
