Boulder County is now offering FREE bike racks to
Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County is launching a program to provide free
bike racks and installation assistance to businesses throughout the county.
Just in time to encourage spring riding, the program helps encourage bicycling
for transportation and also as a part of active living.
Businesses can now get free bike racks and
assistance with choosing a site on their property for the racks so employees
and customers have a safe place to park their bikes.
All businesses are eligible to receive up to five
bike racks, and Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) advisors will help businesses
site the racks and have a design layout approved by their local government
permitting office. Businesses will be responsible for the cost of installation,
but the county will provide a list of pre-qualified installers.
Currently, businesses and multi-family housing
properties are the only entities eligible for receiving free bike racks, but
members of the public are welcome to suggest locations for bike racks. To suggest
locations, residents can email firstname.lastname@example.org
or use the hashtag #BoCoBikeRacks on social media with details about where they
would like to see a bike rack.
This program can also help businesses move towards
Sustainable Transportation certification through PACE as well as national
Bicycle Friendly Business recognition through the League of American
