Saratoga Healthy Transportation Network conducts Bike Rack Inventory.

Saratoga Healthy Transportation Network is making an effort to inventory bicycle racks in the Saratoga Springs area. The goal of this inventory, is to be able to identify locations that need additional bike racks. Providing secure bicycle parking is an effective way to encourage Saratoga area residents to bicycle. Bicycling is an efficient, environmentally-friendly form of transportation that is also healthy and fun. Providing bike racks, is relatively inexpensive, and requires a minimum of maintenance. Providing bicycle parking also demonstrates commitment to a healthy and environmentally sustainable life style.

Healthy Transportation Network is seeking community help. Many existing racks have been located, and some locations have been nominated for new racks. However some bike racks are stored for the winter months. HTN is asking community members to review the bike inventory map, and email HTN with additional existing or nominated bike rack locations. Please submit it to information and nominations to . HTN will complete the inventory, and reach out to the appropriate landowner, and suggest the placement of a rack in that location.

CDTA will again have a subsidized bike rack program for 2012, with applications available in January. They will be offering free bike racks for the public and non-profit sectors, up to $1,000 value, and 50/50 cost sharing for the private sector, up to $1,000 total value (up to $500 from the Bike Rack Program).
