Basel Railway Station Bike Parking

Hi,

In the "Veloparking" under Basel SBB Rail Station, written on the ground next to the back aisle of the free section are the words:

"Bitte Keine Velos Abstellen"

I take it that this translates as:

"Park your bike here, regardless of whether it obstructs other users from getting to the parking spaces".

Cheers,
Nick

Re: Basel Railway Station Bike Parking

Do I detect a total lack of irony detection?

Re: Basel Railway Station Bike Parking

Hmmm, I had always wondered who would park their bikes in that rack, knowing that it would be blocked in by a solid line of bikes by the end of the morning. I mean, it's like that every day; it's not exactly a surprise, is it? I had just assumed that it was used by people who didn't need to get at their bikes, like long-term bike parking.

He who has eyes should use them.
