New bike racks coming to downtown | News
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Along with all the art this week in downtown Grand Rapids, you may also be noticing new bike racks.
The Grand Rapids Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is installing 39 new bike racks to make for about 730 bike parking spaces in downtown.
Short-term bicycle parking typically aims to serve visitors to restaurants, shopping areas, libraries, office buildings, parks, and other destinations where the typical parking duration is two hours or less.
According to the DDA, specific locations include near the entrances to MadCap Coffee Company, HopCat, Founders Brewing Company, the Apartment Lounge, One Trick Pony, and the Calder Plaza Building. The DDA also will deploy numerous racks in the Fulton Street corridor, including near The B.O.B., Van Andel Arena, the forthcoming Grand Rapids Brewing Company, and San Chez Bistro.
