San Francycle: What Went Wrong With Bike Parking at Hardly Strictly?

2009 bike valet parking filled up by morning

Everyone who heard about the bike situation last weekend at Hardy Strictly Bluegrass had the same thought: “what went wrong?”

What was supposed to be an upgrade in bike parking turned into a repeat of last year's deficit: With bike racks overwhelmed early in the festival, concertgoers were left to chain their bikes to anything they could find: trees, fences, even roots protruding from a hillside. It's a good thing the festival wasn't happening down by the windmill, or bicyclists might've been forced to chain their rides to the cruisy men lurking in the bushes.
