It may not be the perfect weather for biking, but the city is rolling out a set of new bicycle racks for local cyclists.

A local welder and Western University artist paired up to create 52 new sculpture art bike posts to be installed on city streets in the spring.

The project was a collaboration between the city, the Urban League of London, the Middlesex-London Health Unit, Western University’s Department of Visual Arts and Our Street London.

Masters of Fine Arts student and sculpture artist Tegan Moore says when she was asked to design the rack some cyclist friend suggested it could emulate a bicycle frame.

All 52 bike racks were produced locally by welder Cam Disher, of London Wrought Iron Products in East London.

The City of London’s Transportation Demand Management Coordinator Allison Miller says Londoners can now suggest locations for the racks online.

    City Seeks Suggestions For Bike Rack Locations…..let’s hope there is a fair distribution of the bike racks. I would hate to find out the Argyle shopping area, East London Library etc. was left out. Once you know where the racks will be placed, please let me know as we will have them identified in the London Community News.
