This is the first part of our year-end “Why We’re Thankful” series, highlighting the Bicycle Coalition’s—and your—accomplishments of 2014.
In 2013, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy put out a call for new bicycle racks—made by (some of) you, Philadelphia artists.
In 2014, thanks to a Knight Arts Challenge grant and private donors, winners were chosen and the new designs have become unique realities all over the city. The creation and installation of such racks not just speak to the creative minds of Philadelphians (as well as national and international designers interested in Philadelphia’s creative and bicycle economies), but to the city’s, nonprofits’ and private donors’ commitment to making Philadelphia a better place for bicyclists. Check out these new racks that were just installed Dec. 18:
The Bicycle Coalition and the people of Philadelphia couldn’t have made this accomplishment happen—or any of our accomplishments, for that matter—without your help. We need your participation to continue our work in 2015 and beyond. So, if you’re not yet, consider becoming a member of the Bicycle Coalition by clicking the button below.
