Final thoughts on bicycle parking... One way I judge the increase in bicycle ridership is by the number of bikes I see parked. Lately, it seems like every rack I see is full (not to mention trees, signposts, and the like). At Georgia Tech, school is out for the summer but nearly every spot is taken at the racks, and only a few spaces are left on the street. What will happen when classes start up in the fall?
And that's where we are now, in the dog days of summer, with half the city seemingly on vacation. What happens if more and more people start riding? Is there an impending bicycle parking crisis in the future?
