New Bicycle Racks in Bessemer

Thanks to AARP for the generous support that made this project possible to help make this community a great place for all ages. We worked with local artist, Doug Kikkebusch to design and create 12 bicycle racks in a Frank Lloyd Wright style. These bicycle racks will be scattered around town come spring time to further encourage artistry and bicycling. Be sure to check them out this spring by stopping downtown and at our locally owned stores!
