I park my bike behind the state IT bldg (501) and have enjoyed the whole bike rack to myself for a good couple of years, but today there was not an end spot for me with the 5 bikes already locked up. I had to use one of the middle spaces and try to get my faghettaboutit U lock to fit. It took a while.
A couple cool guys I work with started riding in to work as well. They all like to make sure I know since I am the "biker dude." They have much longer commutes though. Both are looking to get more fit and use less gas. Pretty cool. I will gladly give up my side spot for that.
