This past spring NeighborWorks Rochester invited local artists to submit designs for new bike racks in The Triangle area of North Winton Village. The winning artists were announced earlier this summer, and the finished racks are now open and waiting for you to secure your bike…

The goals of this project were to create bike parking where there currently is none, to improve access to the businesses located at the apex of the Triangle neighborhood, and to enhance the neighborhood’s unique image.

The chosen artists were awarded $2,000 via the Healthy Blocks Neighborhood Initiative Program to cover the costs to construct each bike rack.

Two of the racks were fabricated by MetalSomeArt, a collaboration of Clay Lieberman and Matty Soanes, and two were created by Jesse Hughson, Skillhoarder and creator of CyrCraft Customs.

The racks were recently installed by the City of Rochester in four strategic locations in the business district area of Culver-Merchants.
