New Bike Racks at Mollie Stone's Market

Running errands on your bike just got easier and more secure on California Avenue.

 

"As more Palo Alto residents get around on their bikes, it's vital that we have the infrastructure in place to support them." Sounds reasonable. Mollie Stone's Market co-owner David Bennett explains his reasoning for installing new bike racks to accomodate 28 bicycles.

Bicycle traffic on California Avenue has become crazy-busy, so Mollie Stone's is addressing the need for security as bicyclists shop.

"We wanted to make sure that we had the ideal setup," said Bennett. "We're very excited to offer these additional racks to our Palo Alto community."

The new bike racks get the seal of approval from Adina Levin, a member of the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition Palo Alto Team,"We're delighted to see the new bike racks at Mollie Stone's, and to see customers using them immediately. Many people in this area prefer to shop by bike, and it's great to see Mollie Stone's step forward to support cycling customers."

Mollie Stone's is located at 164 South California Ave. in Palo Alto.

I think it is great that California Ave businesses are putting up bike racks. Many bicyclists are more afraid of having their bicycle stolen than of being hit by cars in Palo Alto. If the city really wants to encourage people to bicycle to California Ave from the Midtown area, they really need to fix that tunnel that goes under Alma Street near the Caltrain Station. It is really really hard to maneuver a bicycle through the bike traps in the tunnel when you are carrying a load of groceries. And it is practically impossible to squeeze a bicycle with a child trailer through those traps. The alternative route of Oregon Expressway is way too exciting, especially with kids.
