Hub for spokes

Check out this "bike hub" that recently opened in DC -- we wonder if there'd be enough demand for one of these in spots around the Capital Region. [via TMN]

I think the main difference is that its much harder to ride a bike to work in the snow/slush in upstate NY than it is the 4 days the snow actually sticks here in DC... and when it does stick, so many businesses are closed there wouldn't be much bike traffic anyway.

It may not be in-demand to that extent, although the more population dense areas of Albany would benefit from additional bicycle racks. I often find it necessary to lock my bike to street signs and other not so permanent fixtures.

More bike racks please Mayor Jennings!!

While it's a great idea (covered bike storage), that level of commitment to cycling as valid a mode of transportaion in Albany will never happen. I mean, an 80+ page document needed to be drafted just to discuss the possibility of additional bike racks being installed around the city..and that's with the Fed picking up the tab.

The racks will probably come MattW...just remember it's a 30 year plan and may take a while.
