26 neighbors want "pit stops" for bicycle commuters to freshen up before arriving at their final destination in New Orleans.

I think it would be great to have something similar to the McDonalds Cycle Center in Chicago(www.archdaily.com/31324/mcdona...) somewhere in the CBD for people who bicycle to work. Or it might even be more appropriate in New Orleans for there to be several smaller versions in popular destinations through out the city.

McDonalds center is impressive. That shows a real commitment from the City of Chicago to bike transit!

I actually posted this idea on Neighborland before. I think the concept might spur some other great ideas for the GOOD Ideas for New Orleans program. Here's the link for the McDonald Cycle Center in Chicago; www.archdaily.com/31324/mcdona...

I've seen this idea on Neighborland before---are there examples of this in other cities?

Alan, I believe that it's subsidized by the city but they seem to have quite a few revenue generating elements also (bike rentals, tours, bike repair, membership fees to use the showers and lockers, etc). They also offer consulting for cities interested in creating cycle centers at 888-BIKE-WAY.

I've never seen anything like that before. Totally awesome. A lot of their press links are broken-- I would love to know if this is a totally private enterprise that leases space at Millenium Park, or if it is subsidized in some way. My vote is for Lee Circle--tourist accessible, but still serving residents commuting to and from the CBD.
