Neenah, WI May 20, 2016– Future Neenah held a ribbon cutting on May 19, 2016 during Bike Week to celebrate the newly created bike parking area behind their office in Downtown Neenah. These unique bike racks were designed by local architect Adam Heindel and are a whimsical reflection of community amenities such as Lake Winnebago, sailboats in the harbor, our family-friendly community, and the shared love of local music.
The bike racks were fabricated by local business P& D Metal Works, Inc., powder coated by Statewide Powder Coating, and paid for by generous donors in our area.
“I believe that increasing our bike parking near a concentration of businesses, trails, and parks is a much needed amenity for our commuters and cycling community and helps to increase the overall bike-friendliness of our area,” states Future Neenah Executive Director, Amy Barker.
The new bike parking area has a capacity for approximately 70 bicycles and is free for anyone to use. Future plans include adding a water refill station, a communication center for trail maps and upcoming events, and a few murals.
