Times Building Continues to Discourage Bike Commuting

In the latest episode of the New York Times Building vs. bike commuters saga, building management is tagging chained bikes with notes threatening to clip and "remove" them.

After being promised space in the new, 1.5 million square foot building, cyclists were barred from bringing their bikes in for months. Management finally opened a small room with enough space for 20 bikes, which, not surprisingly, is apparently not enough. Rather than meet demand for bike storage in its "green" building, it looks like the Times is again taking a hard line against clean commuting.
