Bike Hub

I think that this could work in Fort Wayne, it seems similar to the facility that I toured a couple years back that is located in Milleneum Park in Chicago. I wish them all the luck and I will follow up on this story later on.

On Wednesday, Karleen Dirmantas left her central Phoenix home at 6:45 a.m. and rode her bicycle 15 miles to the state's first full-service biking center in Tempe. She showered, changed into her work uniform and arrived at work by 8 a.m.

The Bicycle Cellar, which opened Aug. 24, has made it possible for Dirmantas to stop driving her car to work, save money on gasoline and help preserve the environment. Other bicyclists say their benefits include saving money on parking at Arizona State University and enjoying easier access to light-rail stations.

Two Valley bicycle enthusiasts own the facility at Tempe's Transportation Center, which is near ASU and is a hub for light rails and buses.
