|How I imagine a Mayan bicycle mechanic would appear, with wrenches|
Right around the midpoint of the Oak-Encanto bikeway sits a light rail station with some cool public art. On a hot day at noon in the summer, those air conditioned light rail cars with the bike hangers can be a welcome respite, a way to cover some miles and cool down while doing it. The art at this stop is cool, centered around a bronze statue with some interesting details.

It seems like I see more and more bicycles on and around the light rail whenever I ride it. Sometimes, the bicycle hangers are even full, but no one seems to mind in that case if you stand and hold your bike. At least not on the weekends, not sure what a crowded work day would be like. I guess you could always wait for the next train while pondering the details of this bronze stele.
