Curious where people park when they commute to work inner loop. Work around Daley Ctr and trying to figure out decent, "safe" bike parking options, preferably near tie-down points.

Any suggestions appreciated.

You are going to have to pay. I work in the loop along with about 20 other members and you usually wont find any safe free parking for ur bike. I park mine in a pay lot.

Fair nuff. Do you typically do garages or street level lots?

You can park in between cars at meter parking.

Don't expect your bike to last to long doing that. You will get a ticket quicker than sh!t. If she is parking it for the day it will be cheaper to pay for parking than pay for a ticket.

I would never trust that somebody will pull out without knocking my bike over. I try to park as far away from the general population as possible.

I've had real good luck at Grant north/south. Both are around $16 all day and are right off of Michigan ave

I've heard too many horror stories about fetching bikes and scooters out of city lock.

Its easier to park outside the downtown area where its free and jump on the train.

Only good deal I found so far: Corner of Van Buren and Wabash. Underground heated parking for motorcycles $8 daily on weekdays, $12 on weekends.

Park in the free parking area in the Lakeview/Lincolnpark area..east side of Broadway on Barry, Briar etc..then CTA it downtown. Quick enough.

I would think public transit would be cheaper than dishing out $16 a day for parking.

It is, what he's leaving out is that we're thinking of doing a road trip and it will be faster to ride in and then ride out of the city and meet up south of town than it will be to take the train back to the burbs then deal with traffic on the tri-state.
