Well done, dickhead.

At the risk of incriminating myself:

For those of us not familiar with that part of the city, and for our edification to prevent further insult: why?

Context is everything.

In the actual pic, the bike isn't causing any problems - few peds, flower stall not open. So lets imagine (s)he's put it there for a moment while (s)he nips around the corner to buy a ticket from the machine, and (s)he'll be bank in a minute or two. Yes, not an ideal place perhaps, but not really that bad.

Leaving it there all day, at peak time - yes. Definitely pretty stupid. Apart from anything else he risks someone pushing it over and damaging something.

Stupid place to put a light pole too, maybe?

Have seen a few odd bike parkings lately. There were two bikes chained up together and left at the low point of the Anzac Bridge path, west side. No bus stops or other connecting paths nearby.

Stupid railway hasn't laid on bike parking. Hence...

I routinely walk (with my bike after dismounting at the blue line) past that lamp post on my way to work, and there is usually a bike (not always the same one) locked to that lamp post during the morning peak, and it does get in the way of people walking past.

yea, sure you dismount...

I do occasionally ride on past dismount signs at other locations, but I always dismount at this particular one.

When I first started working around this time last year, that particular footpath wasn't a shared user path yet. I rode on the footpath anyway to get to my workplace, and even back then I dismounted just before the station exit, walked across, and jumped back on as soon as I reach the driveway (right next to the station exit).

As of today, I have rotated to a different work location. Bye bye PA Siding. :'(

If there are no bike racks at the location where is one supposed to park ones bike?
