Quantum Apostrophe: If I had the money, I'd get a huge forklift (electric!), smash into the rack and leave the lift there. A forklift is a professional tool...

So is whoever decided people couldn't park their bikes on a bike rack.

My Weeners-- "Or else what?"
Second response-- "Sorry to compromise the professional look of that pile of lumber, paneling, and assorted trash next to your bike rack."

If they were so concerned they could perhaps provide a bike room. That way no one has to know that dirty hippies work there.

FTFA: ...many of which might be outraged that this is how their pension fund treats cyclists.

Jesus Christ. When did "outraged" become a synonym for "mildly concerned"?

In Madison, Wisconsin, there's sort of the opposite problem. Biking is terribly, terribly chic and everyone is tripping over themselves to enable it. Between the dedicated bike trails running out to the suburbs and the bike lanes on major downtown streets, you can get pretty much anywhere. Which is great, but it leaves out a few unfortunate businesses located off the trail-serviced areas. At least one of them has solved this problem by creating a fake trail leading into some tall grass and coming out absolutely nowhere useful.

So from the outside, what you see is a beautifully paved bike trail leading up to gleaming bike racks, because XYZ Corp. is a fun and healthy place to work and supports their hippie employees, etc. I admire the ballsiness of this.

The person who wrote that should be placed in the bike rack for 30 days, using it as a makeshift pillory.
