I though you would be interested in seeing a picture of people in Bombers' jerseys holding their bikes and waiting in line at a bike valet: http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Relax-car-culture-its-gonna-be...
I spoke to David on Saturday and he told me that his numbers of bikes parked at Bomber's games have doubled since starting up just a year ago. Only 120 or so, but he keeps having to bring more racks and steal more space to make room at the site. (Although 120 may seem like an insignificant # compared to overall attendance, the # is growing rapidly....and 120 bikes represents alot of parking spaces, no matter what way you look at it. (Using the standard size on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parking_space, it seems to works out to 21,600 sq. ft. (or half an acre) of asphalt saved.)
..now if we can just find a way to weld tailgates on all bikes, we'd be set.
