I bicycled to Toronto's Sheraton Centre to attend the Architects Convention, (title: Healthy Buildings Healthy Communities) where the Escalades and Lexi are lined up under the lights at the entrance. Over to the side: this, the most disgusting bike rack I have ever seen, replete with a years worth of cigarette butts and almost no room to park a bike for all of the stripped wrecks. Is this the message that a major convention centre and tourist hotel in a supposedly bike friendly city wants to give to its visitors to a conference on healthy cities? Evidently.
Are bicyclists treated better or worse where you live? Send us a picture, either to lloyd (at) treehugger.com or flickr tagged as treehuggerbikerack.
