The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and Exchange District BIZ were excited to start installing 50 elegant new bicycle racks last week. Answering requests from the public and BIZ members, 20 bicycle racks are being installed in the Exchange District and 30 bicycle racks in the Downtown BIZ area by OB1 Construction.
The bicycle racks, supplied by Landscape Forms, were purchased thanks to City of Winnipeg Active Transportation funding. The racks, seen in black as well as silver, have a strong yet artful cast aluminum flat ribbon frame and holding two bicycles each, allow for attachment at two points for each bicycle.
These bicycle racks continue the efforts of both BIZ’s and the city to provide increased cycling amenities in the downtown, to make biking to, from and around the downtown area easier, safer and more enjoyable for all.
