Third Meeting Down

Sign Rack

Rack Style Considered by BikeLakeland

On Wednesday, June 23rd we met for the third time. In our first meeting, we discussed what we wanted to accomplish: bike racks that are “visible, inexpensive, secure, accessible and attractive.” In our second, we worked with city staff to identify where we could place bike racks. In last week’s meeting, we discussed how we’re going to raise funds.

The group has accomplished quite a lot in the short month we’ve operated. We picked a simple, yet attractive design we want to champion. It’s based on the signs found around Lake Mirror. A simple, “H” design with the logo of a bike in between the cross-bars. (You can see an example above.) The actual design will be tweaked to make sure we arrive at our goal of “inexpensive.”

We’ve found a community organization who believes in the BikeLakeland concept and is willing to help handle the funds we raise. With no overhead, we can spend 100% of what we raise on bike racks.
