Already known as a bike-friendly community, bikeability just got even better in Lakewood.
About 15 U-shaped bike racks are also expected to start popping up on Detroit Avenue soon.
The racks on Detroit Avenue — with a price tag of $5,000 for all of them — are just the beginning, said Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development.
One of the key takeaways from last year’s bike study is that in Lakewood, biking is kind of a big deal.
“It’s how people get around,” Siley told Lakewood Patch earlier this year. “We have so many folks who ride as transportation. There (are) recreational riders, people who ride to run errands, and there’s commuter riders.”
