You guys know how sometimes you'll see like 5 or 6 bikes all parked next to each other along the curb downtown in those spaces specially allocated for bikes?
Often times i'll notice that people try and cram as many bikes as possible in that space, and you'll see bikes that are no more than 12 inches apart, maybe even less than that.
As a new rider, I'd be super super nervous about trying to park my bike so close to another bike without knocking over his bike, or possibly even dropping my own bike.
If I parked my bike, and then came back to find 2 other bikes on either side of mine crammed up 5 inches away, I'd be kind of pissed. It's like coming back to your car, and find that you have been boxed in by the car in front and behind you.
So the question is: Is there any kind of etiquette involved when parking next to some else's bike?
