"The firm I work for is just a tenant so this is a management company enforcing these rules. They've been difficult and openly rude on a number of fronts outside of the bike room so I suspect they are just going to tell me to f off."

"Left overnight? That's a lame policy. We don't have a bike room, but the whole basement in my building. Car parking and also the walls for the bikes - I've seen a few bikes there that have been left for months. Do the petition thing."

Office Bike Room Issues

My office's bike room has a policy that says bikes shouldn't be left overnight which no one observes.

I can store my…See More
