Memphis City Hall Bicycle Racks

There have been some bicycle rack additions since my initial sweep of downtown. The City of
Memphis has installed two bicycle racks that truly show our dedication to becoming a healthier and more environmentally friendly city.


The identical racks feature the crest of Shelby County in the front wheel. They are located under a covered arcade so you don't have to worry about your bike getting wet. That's the pro of the location; the con, for me, is that they are placed in front of the building dedication and a poem. It's like covering one piece of art with another, maybe not so drastic because you can still take pictures of either.


Here's how it racks up:

Form - Artistic
Function - 4 bike potential
Environment - spot on
Points of Interest - Memphis City Hall

I believe it is the Dero Bike Rack Co.
