Bike Parking Inside a Former Bank Vault

Website has an interesting article about the historic Spalding Building, which may have what is probably the neatest and most unique indoor bike parking I've ever seen. As a devoted bike aficionado myself, I feel a little jealous that Portland is always so cool when it comes to encouraging cycling. From the article:

There are three former vaults in the building, two of them are used for bike parking. In addition to the imposing doors and two-foot thick walls, the bike parking vaults are monitored by video cameras. Also for its bike-riding tenants, the building also boasts lockers and large, private bathrooms and showers.

There are additional photographs in the article, which were taken by's publisher and editor, Jonathan Maus.
