Waterloo did a cool thing.
A very cool thing.
We are blessed (no sarcasm) with improving parking in the Uptown for bicycles. In fact, as I have mentioned before in this blog, part of the parking structure for cars is given over to bicycle parking. This is a new thing for our area (we are not Amsterdam...). The part that is for bicycles has clear signage, is easy to get to from the street, sidewalk, and a path, and has this nifty cool thing there now:
Yep, you guessed it, the city has installed a work stand.
Tools are on aircraft cable and located inside the tower tube, there is a spot to hang the bike, and an air pump.
Colour me impressed.
Keep up the good work Waterloo (all we need is some action on the street redesign that puts the proposed bicycle infrastructure between the sidewalk and the parked cars, not between the parked cars and the moving cars as was officially proposed.)
As an aside, men's clothing is boring. Can I have a men's version of this sweet tankie?
And one last thing. My 2014, a year of my bike page has started to get its updates. Check back daily if you are interested as updates will be frequent.
