More places to park your bike
A project begun in 2007 by the St. Louis Bike Federation (which merged with Trailnet in 2011), that won a federal grant to manufacture and place bike racks throughout the St. Louis region, is complete. This project included a design competition, and the winning design is the origin of the iconic arch bike rack that has been installed widely throughout the region.
You will notice from the photo below that the racks manufactured for this project are not silver like the ones you’ve probably seen; they are black to meet historic design criteria.
Many thanks go to the William A. Kerr Foundation and REI for their generous grants that provided the “match funds” the St. Louis Bike Federation and Trailnet needed to leverage the federal grants to complete the project.
Most of the bike racks manufactured for this project have been installed so keep an eye out. They can be found as far north as Bellefontaine Neighbors and as far west as Fenton – and at many locations in between.
