In 1957, Paul Caspersen bought a black, three-speed Raleigh bicycle for $90. This American classic carried Caspersen, now 70, through Europe, the Wisconsin and Minnesota countryside and, of course, the streets of Minneapolis.

Caspersen asked airport employees where he could lock up his bike. They looked at him blankly and shrugged their shoulders.

That is a tragic story. I just went to my local airport the other night looking for bicycle parking. No one knew where it might be. There is bicycle parking on the arrivals level outside, but it doesn't look terribly secure. And then there was an out of the way spot for bikes that looked like a good way to get your bike stolen. Either way, nothing that takes bikes seriously as transportation.
