Thursday, June 19, 2014
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.—Cyclist-friendly bicycle racks are being installed at several locations in the downtown Colorado Springs area thanks to a cooperative effort between the City Traffic Engineering Department and the Downtown Partnership. Cyclists can access a map showing bicycle routes around the city, get bicycle rules and safety information and learn about upcoming events using their smartphone to read a QR code on the bike stands. City bicycling information can be found at http://coloradosprings.gov/bike.
To date, nine racks have been installed with a total of 16 to be installed by the end of summer.
Bike racks can be found at:
- Three at 106 E Boulder St (on Boulder between Tejon St and Nevada Ave)
- Five at 131 E Bijou St (Bijou St. and Nevada Ave)
- One at 401 N Tejon St (just north of Boulder Ave)
The new bike racks are part of the City’s continued efforts to create a more bike friendly community for residents and visitors.
As a reminder, June is Bike to Work Month with Wednesday, June 25 as Bike to Work Day. The public is encouraged to participate in the program by registering at www.coloradospringsbiketowork.com.
