After some debating with John Lankford about this, I gave in to create the Grid Shots theme of “community gardens”. He sent me the first photo to feature (above). The bottom line, that won me over, was that a lot of people bike to their community gardens. I’ve even biked to a community garden myself, with Brandon Gobel and Jana Kinsman, to deliver beehives

    I miss Gethsemane. When I lived in Rogers Park, I used to ride there regularly.

      I didn’t want to mention that they also have a decent sized car parking lot.
      Someone should have nominated them for our Bike Parking Awards. It’s almost unheard of when a business provides more than 4 spaces for bikes.

    You should definitely add some photos of our Kidical Mass community garden ride last Summer. http://www.flickr.com/photos/71827507@N03/sets/72157630168695328/

      I thought I’d seen those photos somewhere. I’ve added one to the post.
