When you're a bicycle advocate, you have to be resourceful -- like using the name and phone number of the Wal-Mart manager on your Wal-Mart receipt to contact her and request a bicycle rack in front of the store.
That's exactly what I did Wednesday afternoon when I went to Wal-Mart today on Dale Mabry near I-275 and noticed no bike rack and at least five bikes locked to trees and sign posts on islands in the parking lot.
What a mess.
So I called the Wal-Mart store manager, a woman named Debbie because her name and phone number was right on my receipt.
I asked her to please install a bike rack.
And she said she would include a new bike rack when the store is remodeled in February.
Let's hope Debbie the Wal-Mart manager was not BSing me.
