Maybe you’ve always dreamed of riding your bike to work. You know, wind in your hair, starting each morning out right with a workout, but then you worried about smelling like you went for a bike ride that morning. Or you worried about where to store your bike.
Downtown employees, worry no more! St. Louis just opened the Downtown St. Louis Bicycle Station at 1011 Locust Street, across the street from Left Bank Books. The new commuter station is a 1,400 facility with over 100 bike racks, 70 lockers, and five showers and facilities with key-coded access. In addition to the storage area, Big Shark Bicycling Company opened an location adjacent to the station, Urban Shark.
The cost of membership to the bike station is $150 annually, or $20 a month with a $20 initiation fee. Register with Trailnet. Remember, if the weather turns for the worse or you don’t want to ride home, the 8th and Pine MetroLink Station is 3 blocks away to bike and transit home. Biking to work is a great way to save gas money, improve your health, keep more cars off the road, and promote a vibrant bicycling community.
Do you plan to use the Downtown Bicycle Station? Do you plan to bike to work more often, now that the nice weather was returned?
