    I mean, you dropped in to this thread to imply that LSGís prize designed to encourage people to make use of the change in Metroís policy was going to ruin that advocacy win, but want to be left out of it when he says youíre yelling at clouds?

    I donít see anything in the structure of the prize that encourages poor behavior. Most of the folks playing Freezing Saddles are upstanding citizens that will ride metro courteously with their bikes. From an advocacy stand point high utilization will create the opportunity to advocate for dedicated space for bikes on Metro like some other light rail systems have such as the St. Paul, MN system:

    Sweet. This would be a great picture and experience to e-mail to WABA and have them share on social media. They have a couple of folks riding metro with bikes this morning.

    Some might read the OP(both in and outside the forum) and subsequent posts and see it as a challenge for who rides the most crowded train.

    I donít think we should accuse poor LSG of jeopardizing the new policy just because some people inside and outside of the forum added a bunch of words to the contest about cramming on to a crowded train that just arenít there or even implied.

    Iím fairly confident that Paul Wedfield only skims the forum so I donít think LSG is putting anything at risk.

    Only 7 feet long? I wish my normal ride were that short. In any event, the length and width would put this outside of the allowable size limits (that still exist), so please don't break Metro's rules. (Apparently, my 750mm wide flat bars are already too large for Metro, so I still can't bring my regular bike on board)
