FREE – Bike Racks & Corrals From LA DOT

At the MINC Stakeholder Meeting in August, we learned from our guest speaker, Bruce Gillman, from LA Dept. of Transportation, that FREE bike racks and corrals are available for commercial corridors.  It is for businesses/organizations only to “adopt”.  But if your business would like one – or a church, school, etc. – be sure to pass along the information.

If you’re not sure what a bike corral is – check out this link below – it’s a cool new way the city has of taking back parking spaces in lieu of bike spaces:

Here is the link to request a bike rack:

Be sure to put in your request before this opportunity passes!
