Regarding bike parking shortages and the competition for thefew scarce rac=
k spaces among bikes, scooters and motorcycles . . . The state ofbike park=
ing facilities in Cambridge and Boston is currently inadequate. Cyclists=
 collectively provide an enormous service to the community by foregoingcar=
s other vehicles and their attendant noise, dangerousness, consumption ofs=
pace, harmful emissions, strain on infrastructure and visual blight.  Yet=
 weare left to scrounge for places to park the vehicles that make this con=
tributionpossible.  What we really need is more bike corrals installed for=
mer on-streetparking spaces.  There=E2=80=99s a nice one outside the Other=
 Side caf=C3=A9 onNewbury Street.  Portland, OR and increasingly  San Fran=
cisco have done a beautifuljob with this and Boston should follow suit. =
 We could have a much betterorganized and civilized set up for bike parkin=
g and really enhance our qualityof life.
