Bike Racks of Louisville

This is the sign for the previous bike rack

This last one is the first I saw while walking and it is still my favorite.

I loved the bike racks. There were at least 5 more that I saw but didn't take a picture. I heard from a friend in ODU's Art Department that The City of Norfolk is requesting bids for artistic bike racks for Norfolk. That is such a great idea. It give local student and faculty artists the chance to beautify the city in a very utilitarian way. I just love the marriage of art and utility. I can't wait for the results of the bids and for the erection of the art pieces themselves. Hopefully Robbin will take pictures for me, since I will likely have moved on.
