Got the rack in England. It is a copy of the old Madrid racks.

If I remember correctly, this tag was used a couple of years ago. Nonetheless, a good one!

Aw man... Used to ride right by there on my way to work. Maybe I can snag it, though I am on-call for work and it's a touch out of range...

Clue:

This company received a half billion dollar loan guarantee from the federal government as part of the stimulus package
and the president gave a televised speech from the site of this building while it was under construction.

The name of the road in which this building is located is the same as the name of the sidekick of a comic book hero.
In the TV series adaption, the part of the sidekick was played by Bruce Lee.

Next tag... Either really easy, or totally obscure. :)
I don't often get out of work before the sun goes down (sad trombone). But when I do, I always pass this South Bay landmark/art piece...

It's the weekend! (long one no less), time for some tagging! Here's a hint-

Under many bridges are many trolls... One of the West Coast's most famous trolls dons the same name of the street the above art piece resides.

(second hint: I grant you that on this same street, are many similar art pieces, depending on how far east or west you want to go).

I know where this is but I can't get there. Bike has a leak... The cross street is named after a city in the bay area and a president... That should help.

I've been busy deckbuilding, but that's almost done. I think I know where it is, just haven't had time to snag it. It's a good tag, no apologies needed!

Hint #1: (for the above photo, obviously)--
Quote:
In the mid 1800's, the abundant redwood forests gave rise to a thriving lumber industry... ...At the time, the lack of roads made it difficult to get the lumber transported. An Irishman, Martin McCarty, solved the problem after he leased the mill from Campbell. He obtained a franchise from the Court of Sessions to build a toll road from the mill down to the small settlement at the mouth of the canyon.

A tollgate was then erected at the location of present day 3rd Street and Big Basin Way. The toll was $3 for a two horse team and $6 for a four horse team. The village which developed at this site was named Tollgate...
