Next time you go to City Hall or Market Street downtown you can lock your bike to one of these artist-designed bike racks which are the winning designs from the Treasure Island bike rack contest we held last year. The racks were just installed this morning!
These unique designs use the same square-tubed steel material you see on standard U-racks and if mass-produced, could cost about the same as the those racks. We are excited about these creative designs, which represent the unique character of Treasure Island, and hope that the City considers using one of these designs for the bike racks on Treasure Island. The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition organized the bike rack design contest in partnership with the SF Department of Public Health and Caltrans as part of our work to create a bicycle-friendly and walkable Treasure Island.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to showcase these racks in the city, and know they will be well used by the growing numbers of people who are getting around town by bike.
Congratulations to the winners of this contest – Kirk Scott, Todd Gilens, Daly Genik Architects, and Ryan Dempsey for their great designs and unique reference to Treasure Island, and Laurie Halsey Brown for curating the design contest.
