Now there are more places to park your bike in historic downtown Issaquah.
We spearheaded installation of the artist-designed bike racks throughout Olde Town. Overall, 15 bike racks will be added as part of the project.
The designs for the racks include concentric ripples in the water of a rocky creek, the spiraling fiddlehead of a fern and the concentric spirals of the human fingerprint.
“In creating art for Issaquah's bike rack project, I wanted to support the City's goal of sustainability by promoting and celebrating Issaquah residents’ connection to their natural world,” bike rack artist Kathleen Frugé-Brown said. “To accomplish this, I sought images that would provide both a strong sense of place, and an inclusive reminder of viewers’ shared values and home.”
The installation is a reflection of our community’s walk ‘n’ roll culture — as well as one of the first priority elements in the Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan. To learn more, go to a href="http://issaquahwa.gov/index.aspx?nid=1284">issaquahwa.gov/walknroll.
