The Crim Fitness Foundation and members of the Safe and Active Genesee for Everyone (SAGE) coalition installed nine new CycleSafe bike racks along South Saginaw Street in downtown Flint this past November 2013.
SAGE offers downtown business owners the opportunity to have bike racks installed free of charge. Previously, bicyclists were forced to improvise parking and chain their bicycles to tree, street signs, benches, and anything else they could find. By providing bicycle parking, SAGE hopes to support active living. Available bicycle parking encourages shoppers to ride their bicycles downtown, knowing there will be safe parking available when they arrive at their destination.
