After 6 years of waiting, Philadelphia's Adopt a Rack contract quietly was inaugurated this morning at the Academy of Natural Sciences. 5 new racks were installed in the front and several on 19th Street. Now the Academy is truly a bicycle friendly building.
Ultimately 1500 racks will be installed around the City in locations were property owners, business districts and community groups have signed maintenance agreements. In those areas where business districts or property owners won't sign agreements, the Bicycle Coalition is working with the Streets Department to get racks installed in important locations.
Thank you Streets Department for getting this contract on the ground (and in the cement!).
