Saw this yesterday at 7th Avenue, while participating in the Arbutus Greenway temporary surface covering public consultation. I’m amazed that I haven’t seen it before. While bike racks are by definition utilitarian (I almost wrote “pedestrian”), sometimes smart and connected design can elevate something out of that realm. This design is certainly inspired and fun.
Congrats to Kitsilano Neighbourhood House for getting these in place.
For those following the Arbutus Greenway story, the City will apparently release the consultation results on October 15 at an open house. Details t.b.a.
