Park Your Ride

This very cool bike shelter was installed a few years ago by the entrance to the St Clair West subway station. I could find no info on the designer of the shelter but they did a fine job! I took this pic last week on Good Friday when there were few people out and about and very little traffic of any kind. And you can see how grey our world still is - no leaves on the trees yet and empty planters!

I like the bikes on top! Still no green or blooms here as well.

Nice! That's really biker-friendly.

You will not find this here. Not with a roof. Very cool!

Cool? That's an understatement! It's great!

This is very similar to the Go Transit bike shelters where the wheels spell the word GO. You can see one here

That's a great design. Something in common with the days when shops displayed symbols showing what they were - bunch of grapes for wine, mortar and pestle for apothacary etc. Ah - maybe cyclists don't read too well? Have a great weekend!

I love this bike shelter - though sadly, I rarely see any bikes in it. (mind you I'm not out that way that often...)

Looking at yesterdays post and today's again I can't believe the similarities in our cities Pat.. These bike topped shelters could be (and are)at my local train station :)

I love to see functional art...what a clever sculpture. And yeah, you need some sunshine and green up there! What a winter you have had.

I like the simple bicycles on the top of the bike rack cage. And, yes, GRAY! Sorry.
