What We Do
The Bike Rack Project
Why Artistic Bike Racks?
Great cities integrate art, aesthetic elements into the fabric of who they are and that means integrating aesthetic elements into the design of the structure of everyday life. Bike racks are a wonderful way to capture a city’s vibe, provoke curiosity, and a smile.
Since 2006, the City of Roswell has been designated as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Roswell was the first city in Georgia to receive this recognition.
The Bike Rack Project is a partnership initiative between the City of Roswell and Roswell Arts Fund.
The Bike Rack Project is designed to:
- Enhance Roswell’s image as a cultural destination and bicycle friendly city
- Help brand Roswell, activate our Modern Spirit. Southern Soul
- Accommodate our large number of cyclers
- Promote healthy living and healthy air
- Weave art into our infrastructure
- Improve our aesthetic biking and pedestrian experience
- Build our public art collection
- Encourage alternative mode of transportation in dense areas with parking shortages such as Historic Downtown Roswell
- Put a smile on your face!
