Had a co-worker send me this article and thought it was worth sharing:

Was she planning to ride her bike inside Wal-Mart? :crazy:

I've walked into stores, hotels, and a hospital with my bike. No one seemed alarmed. It has even sparked some good conversations.

What was she expecting to do with the bike when she got inside?

Funny story but doesn't seem to tell the whole story. Were there no bike racks? No poles outside?

It is interesting - I mean I would love to see that demo..

But I have taken my bike inside when I there was no where good to lock it up..

Interesting - I probably would not go to Wal Mart in that situation if I was commuting I would have had a viable lock up solution - I guess I would not have expected it to be "OK"

I mean I have been chased out of a few malls in the day escalators are fun to ride down...

Why doesn't this ever happen at the Wally World I go to?

I'd gladly hold her bike, shirt, pants & what ever else she wanted to take off.

Unlike others, I pride myself in being a good Samaritan. :big_grin:

If you've ever seen the folks that frequent the Wal-Mart in Hermitage you'd be glad they stayed fully clothed. :big_grin:
