Free bike racks

By , August 22, 2013 1:27 pm

SRPEDD is giving away bike racks to area towns. According to this article:

The Southeastern Regional Planning & Economic Development District is gearing up to launch a “bicycle parking” program this fall that aims to increase the number of bike racks around the region.

The program is funded by the Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program and will allow cities and towns to purchase bike racks at a discount. SRPEDD will reimburse communities for their cost, meaning towns will only have to pay for installation.

Something like this isn’t going to bring the tourists rushing in but it couldn’t hurt. Having a few of these sprinkled through the downtown could lure the odd cyclist to stop and spend.

    This is great news.
    Our town could use bike racks, bike trails, bike education and bike friendly drivers.
    I’ll do some research on this, if no one else is already doing it.
