After much work planning and permitting, four of our partner schools are getting covered bike parking installed over the next few weeks. The shelter at Boise Eliot is almost complete (check out the before and after photos below).
BEFORE: A wet day at Boise Eliot School...
AFTER: An almost complete bike shelter!
The other three schools receiving bike shelters are Sacramento Elementary, Lewis Elementary, and Kelly Elementary. Each school identified covered bike parking as one of their priorities in their Safe Routes Engineering Report. We hope that safe, protected bike parking will encourage more parents and students to ride their bikes to school whatever the weather.
The shelters were designed and manufactured by Dero Bike Rack Co. out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and are being installed by City of Portland's Bureau of Maintenance.
