Want a Free Bike Rack For Your Business?
If so, now's an excellent time to get one with help from CHAMPS, DDOT, and WABA. After the jump find out how get the process rolling.
I wanted to let you know that we've been working with DDOT and WABA to get bike racks installed along the corridor and want to make sure we have them everywhere that we need them! They installed one at Capital City Diner 2 weeks ago and we've got 5 going in this morning at the Argonaut, but I know that there are still several areas that are sorely in need of racks.
If you need bike parking in front of your business (or know of a location that could really use it), please let me know. The info I need is:
- Business Name (if applicable)
- Business Address (or description of location if it's not in front of a business)
- How many bikes you need to accommodate: There are various kinds of racks, but what they seem to be using most are the black upside down U shaped racks, each of which can accommodate 2 bikes.
- Priority level - if this is a location that already has some racks but could use a few more that would be a lower priority than the places where there are no bike racks to be seen, if that makes sense. Everyone will get racks - it's just a matter of trying to prioritize which ones go in first.
After I have that information, I can take care of the rest of the details and will contact you individually about when the various installations will occur.
