Famed St. Paul blogger Teresa Boardman has a good question for the city: What’s the deal putting bike racks around businesses with no bike traffic, and not having many where there is?
A laundromat, for example. Who bikes with loads of laundry?
Or this spot. A tattoo shop.
I have never seen anyone bike to the tattoo shop which is located in between and auto body shop and an ambulance garage. I have never seen anyone bike to the body shop. There are no other businesses on the block but there is a cafe with out a bike rack across the street where it would get used. This one will never get used.
