LAKE TAHOE BICYCLE COALITION AND TAHOE FUND TEAM UP TO PROVIDE MORE ‘BIKE RACKS FOR BUSINESSES’

Businesses in the Lake Tahoe Basin are invited to apply until June 12 for low or no-cost bike racks; program designed to encourage more people to ride instead of drive

Following the successful first phase of the “Bike Racks for Businesses” program that was introduced to agencies in 2018, the nonprofit Tahoe Fund will continue its partnership with the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition (Bike Coalition) to offer low or no-cost bike racks to interested businesses in the Tahoe Basin. The program is designed to encourage locals and visitors to ride their bikes around lakeside communities instead of drive.

Businesses interested in bike racks are invited to apply until June 12, 2019 through the online application.

Two bike rack options are available, each with a bolt-down or free-standing version. Interested businesses will be selected by the Bike Coalition based on criteria that includes their ability to provide matching funds, experienced or projected bike rack use, and community benefit based on surrounding businesses or services. See the flyer below for information on each rack.

The Bike Coalition will be responsible for all ordering, shipping and professional installation of the bike racks on behalf of the selected businesses, with installations expected mid-July 2019.

Email racks@tahoebike.org with any questions.
