There will be a gathering at Old Settlers Park today as a local photo shoot takes place to promote the bike racks. The BID Board will be on hand along with members of Bike Friendly West Bend.
There will be a total of 10 bike racks in the downtown BID district. “Three are already installed in our two parks, with seven being installed soon,” said Parks Director Craig Hoeppner.
The BID Board paid for the bike racks and the city is installing them. The bike racks will extend from BMO Harris Bank and West Bend Tap & Tavern on the north end to Riverside Brewery and Restaurant on the S. Main Street.
“The racks the BID Board has provided and the city has installed are artful, functional and placed near shops, restaurants, parks and activities where cyclists want to go,” said Jeff Puetz with Bike Friendly West Bend. “Racks are a visible sign cyclists are welcome and that the community values their presence and the security of their property.”
