bike racks repurposed

40 new repurposed bike racks

40 new repurposed bike racks were installed along North Flatbush Avenue. We previously had 48 bike parking along our corridor. We are currently working on a few bike corrals for our area. One particularly at Park Place and Flatbush Avenue.

We recognize the need to encourage more bike riders to our area to visit, dine and shop and the need for additional bike parking is mandatory in our area.

If you have an idea for a bike corral (no corrals on Flatbush Avenue) let us know.
