I rode my bike to Bunnings. This is what I sent to “Customer Feedback” on the net.
I don’t drive, I ride a bike. Today was the first time I rode my bike to Bunnings to pick up some tools needed for household improvement (a pipe wrench and adjustable pliers).
There was no place to securely lock my bike. The bollards, which prevent theft are too big to chain a bike to, and a persistent thief would just lift the a bike up off of it if you could chain it to it.
Locking the bike to the trolley bay? Not unless you want it scratched or crushed by cars or trolleys. I have a $1600 electric bike. I need a secure place to lock them. I have discussed this with other bike riders and they agree, some sort of ‘bicycle’ bay is needed. Just a couple of upside down U metal pipes cemented into the ground would do it. It would increase sales as people won’t have to wait to get a ride, or go to the K-Mart to get tools.
Who knows? Might actually get some results. Can’t hurt to ask!
