Every once in a while, despite the frustrations of commuting by means other than the car, a small victory occurs and keeps you going. About six months ago, I requested bike racks at the Victory Park parking lot where Pasadena’s farmer’s market is held on Saturdays. The lack of bike racks meant that you had to find a fence post or other stationary object on which to lock your bike. Given the space premium on Saturdays, this often entailed a walk around the farmer’s market before you could find parking. Meanwhile those who drove their 2,500 lb gas hogs to buy 20 lbs worth of fruit and vegetables got priority. Well, as I was walking back to my bike at yesterday’s market, what should I come across, but two brand, spanking new inverted U racks! Thank heaven for small victories. And thank you to the City of Pasadena’s DPW for listening to citizens.
