We've had a couple of these threads before, but the last one I remember was a couple years ago roughly.
I've been riding my bike to work (Burrard and Dunsmuir) pretty often recently. I'd usually park on Thurlow (near Barclay) if I got there early enough. Rode there last week -- lo and behold, my typical free MC parking is gone now. Bute and Alberni disappeared last year sometime.
Do you guys have little nooks and crannies you tuck your bike in when heading to work? Some of the meters are ridiculous... $6 an hour for bike parking my ass.
