Want to bike to work. but worried about the safety of your bike? Well, today the Liberty Village Business Association released their new Bike Here! program which launches twelve new bicycle racks, and three clusters of secure storage lockers, to make Softchoice’s neighbourhood friendlier to cyclists.
The twelve new bicycle racks are far from the ones you are used to, they are artist designed pieces, reflecting the creative spirit of the community. The designs were submitted late last year to the Bike Here! Committee, and those designs are featured on the central panels of the new racks.
Each of the twelve racks is a beautiful combination of form and function that both allow the cyclists to admire local artists, while granting reliable, safe storage space. In addition, the three bicycle storage lockers will give cyclists that have expensive bikes, an extra level of security and convenience. Safer than a rack, and easier than carrying them up and down in your office, these bicycle lockers will be available for a low $10 monthly rent from the Liberty Village BIA.
With Softchoice providing a green commute subsidy to those that leave their cars are home, and now with these new affordable lockers, the business case to bike to work is stronger than ever.
