The announcement that additional free bike parking would be provided for the opening day of the Chinatown Remixed received a lot of online attention. So much so that I began to worry the 40 spots would not satisfy demand, so I did a quick, unscientific survey of other bike parking spots up and down Somerset where the Remixed events are happening, and roughly plotted them out on the map below. UPDATE: May 24, 2015 – There are far fewer bike parking locations this year. Not sure why.
Pink markers are the post and hoop type that look like this. I noticed 70. Two bikes per stand, that’s 140 bikes.
Green markers identify other assorted types of racks. I’ve included images of them below and on the map, visible by clicking on a green marker.
There are also at least 45 t-posts or street sign posts available for locking. Not officially sanctioned, but the authorities and the Chinatown BIA are good about it, as they are throughout most of the city. Except for Sparks St.
