Boston Bike Parking

Boston bike parking
Notable because we’re finally getting some!

This does have a distinctive “Boston” look, don’t you think? (even if it isn’t an ideal design)

    These racks are really really old, but you are right, lots of new racks have been sprouting up all over town. I am pretty stoked about all the parking improvements all over town, but like most things we need more more more!

    When I saw these racks I immediately thought that they must be for locking up horses. I wouldn’t be surprised if thats what they were intended for originally.

    As a nearly life-long equestrienne, I can assure you that these racks are not for tying up horses.

    They’re too low, too near the street, and too metal. You couldn’t pay me to tie my horse here, she’d hurt herself within ten minutes.

    You’re right that they’re old, I just like that they look particularly Bostonian, unlike the new ones which are popping up.
