Alamo Drafthouse Cinema In Richardson Comes With Cool Bike Parking

Posted in BFR Misc, Bike Friendly, Cool Richardson Destinations by dickdavid on August 10, 2013

The highly anticipated  Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson is finally open for business. Not only has this become one of the hottest destinations in town, it also has an amazing lineup of bike racks that are in the shape of film reels.

Speaking of cool bike parking, the new Whole Foods in Addison has some very impressive bike racks that are in the shape of bicycles. It almost makes up for them leaving Richardson.

I’m glad that both of these businesses care enough about cyclists, and got really creative with their bike parking. This shows that there are some forward-thinking business owners that care about supporting alternate transportation, the local bike culture and a strong community.

I hope that bike parking, like this, continues to be an ongoing trend with new construction around town.

    It is great they are being creative while also being practical. Some try too hard on the creative side and end up with something that you can’t securely lock your bike to. *cough*Good-to-Go*cough

    “It almost makes up for them leaving Richardson.”

    So – is the Whole Foods on Coit, the one linked to as a BFR partner, closed?

    I guess I wont be getting my free bottle of water.

      I’ve heard HEB is moving into that spot but no confirmation.

      We’re still trying to work this out. The person who we made the deal with is no longer at that store. Now, their process for community involvement requires a long process. Stay tuned.
