The City’s Best Bike Racks (A Bike Tour)

Portland’s got some nice racks. Other cities have other kinds of racks that garner media attention, but no city sports as nice a set of racks as Portland. Bike racks, of course.

Portland, ever eccentric, just wasn’t willing to settle for the ordinary “staple-style” bike racks, nor the the improved “wave-style” model. Nope, Portland decided to support the racks of individual businesses who wanted to add some unique flare to their sidewalks. Businesses have loved the idea, instead of the usual staple-shaped bolt-on rack, they can get creative and design a rack that will lift and separate their location from that of their neighbor.

Why not check out some of the following bike racks around town when you’re free-wheeling and fancy-free!
