    I'm just wondering how many of those bikes are actually locked up and if I can steal a green one.

    @Andre: There's a photo around somewhere from Denver RTD where they compared the space taken up by 30 people in cars (lots), bikes (much less) and a bus (one bus load). I wish I could find it. They did this in the Elitch Gardens parking lot about seven or eight years ago.
