Cyclists in Cranbrook will soon have nearly 35 brand new bike racks to use through the downtown core thanks to an initiative taken on by Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary.
In consultation with the City, Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary has set a goal to install the bike racks to help provide numerous safe locations for cyclists to lock their bikes and eliminate bikes being parked haphazardly, locked up to parking meters and trees. The intent of the initiative is also to complement existing and future City planning infrastructure designs, while promoting and supporting the increasing number of cyclists.
Sunrise Rotary is hopeful to complete the bike rack project by the end of June 2017.
Sunrise Rotary is inviting businesses, groups and individuals to help support this project by sponsoring a bike rack. For a sponsorship fee of $500, you can help install at standard post rack that allows for the parking of two bikes. Application deadline for sponsorship is Wednesday March 15, 2017.
To apply to be a sponsor or if you have questions, please contact Glenn Dobie at 250-417-3230 or Darryl Bishop at 250-426-6618. An information and donation package is available for download or for pick up at City Hall.
