The City of Brantford has installed new bicycle racks at 19 parks throughout the city to encourage residents to choose cycling as their mode of transportation to playgrounds, sports fields and recreational sports leagues.
“We are very grateful to the financial support from the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Fund and the Government of Ontario who made the new bike racks and repair stations possible,” said Kathryn Broadbelt, Transportation Planning Project Coordinator, City of Brantford. “This is an exciting addition to our community that encourages environmentally-friendly forms of transportation.”
In addition to the bike racks, Jaycee Sports Park, Mohawk Park and the Rotary Bike Park also feature new bicycle repair stands that residents can use to pump their tires or fix their bike if needed while out for a ride.
