Riding to Work Again

Blackie's new hitchin' post and friend
Now that I'm in my new "home" I can, and do ride to work.  It's a bit further than last time, which is no problem.

I'm glad to be riding again, but I'm not going to be making a daily record here of it.  That didn't seem to interest anyone.

I will post if anything interesting happens.

Unfortunately this bike rack, like all I've found at work is inadequate.  It is bolted together (could be easily taken apart), weighs only about 10lbs, and isn't anchored to the ground.  At least with two bikes on it, it would be unwieldy for some one to just grab the whole thing and throw it in the back of a truck.  I go down and check on it every hour or so so make sure it's still there.

I haven't found a new place for Blackie to corral while I'm earning my keep, so I'll just have to make do with this.  I do bring my bags in for the day (this was all saddled up for the trip home yesterday).

From Mike McC:

"Lock the bike to the rack and lock the rack to the building?"

There is no way to lock the rack to the building, there is nothing to lock it to.

Actually I usually hope there are a lot of other bikes so that it makes the whole thing heavier.
