Waukesha Bike Rack Project

We are beginning to work with the BID and the City on the possibility of getting some bike racks installed downtown. One of the things they've asked us to do is document potential locations and take pictures of areas we think bike parking would be a nice edition to the city. To gather more input I've started a flckr pool here. If you're on flickr feel free to add photos of where you park your bike or where you'd like to. Ideas are open to anywhere in the city, not just downtown. Business owners, your input is vital! Let us know if bike racks are something you would or would not want near your business. Remember, the photos are only ideas, there's quite a bit more process to go through before anything materializes.

  1. I am envisioning a series of large half gear as a bike rack, it will be placed not in the public side walk but within our property line.

  2. That would be perfect! As long as you can fit a cable or U-lock thru and there's no sharp edges, it will work great! Thanks KF!

  4. I was at the BID meeting for another matter and the bike rack project was in the agenda. No one was there representing but from what I gathered was that depends on what design, it can be public art. However, if they go on sidewalks, the city has to ok that.
