Re: I love my new home town

We have one of those at our local bike trail also. Been there for awhile, nobody's vandalized it to date. It's nice to have, I had to use it the other day actually. It all starts when we are young. If you teach kids to take care of stuff and be proud of your nice things they tend to last longer. But I know, not everyone has it so nice or easy but I still try to instill that in kids that I come in contact with not just my own.

We had those tool posts scattered around the city in Athens, GA.  Perfect way to meet one of the college cuties when you see them fumbling with the wrenches.

I think in the long run it is good for tax payers. Bike paths that are inviting like this keep citizens more fit and a bit more on the healthy side which somewhere in a dark corner of city government might mean reduced insurance rates and bike paths like this attract vistors from other towns, who are likely to spend money when in town biking. Even if it's just for food and fuel. Even though my town has a nice bike trail I do travel to town about 20 minutes away because they have more paths and amenities.  I don't know. I could be wrong. Just my observation from my area.

I hope so, you paid for the same exact thing at the new HEB downtown. big_smile

HEB downtown? In SA town?

It's more worthwhile than the majority of what our taxes go to.

Yep. In SA. It's actually pretty cool to me though.

Which downtown one? I used to live downtown and the nearest one was on the south side. Very ghetto, most food was expired or out of place. I'm hoping it isn't that one...

Do u live in Columbus?

I live in Columbus and I've actually seen this here.  There is a station just like this on the Olentangy Trail, just south of 161.  I saw it last year but haven't been back that way to see if it's still intact.  I'll post pics of the current condition when I am back over that way riding. 

I think it's a very cool concept.  A lot of people will gloss over it and not give it a thought but there are a ton of riders out there who do know how to fix their own stuff and will take advantage of this.  This is one of those things that you don't really need.......until you need it.  I'm glad they are starting to put stuff like this near the trail.

Yeah, supposedly the Union Pacific railroad was loaning out the land the track was built on.
I really don't believe that for one second. If that was true why would the city still be allowed
to hold a mud pit on the track site, during 4th of July festivities??

Re: I love my new home town

Fellow Ohioan here.  We just got a Whole Foods here in my hometown and has something very similar.  Marietta is a nice town, you could probably leave a personal item next to one of those and it would probably be there the next day or turned in.  Feel bad for those guys in Venice and LA saying that it wouldn't last one day.
