This past weekend the Yonge Lawrence Village BIA unveiled a set of bike art racks along the Yonge Street sidewalks.
Community residents, especially bike enthusiasts, will be delighted with the latest project of the Yonge Lawrence Village Business Improvement Association (BIA).
In early May 2008, 16 innovative bike stands will be installed on Yonge Street from Lawrence Ave to Yonge Blvd. The first eight “art” racks are now in production and have been designed by an entrepreneurial group from Bike Stand Art, led by Phil Sarazen and Jack Gibney.
My favourite one so far is this flower rack which sits almost in front of a flower shop. (Unfortunately I arrived after it closed last night.) Many of the racks have small pieces of stone embedded in the rack to give an accent.
