A look at those beautiful bike racks popping up in Washington D.C.

Ride a bike to make the city experience more beautiful, independent, quiet and peaceful. Use a bike rack to make the city more beautiful and help small businesses expand their brand onto the sidewalk. That’s what the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, D.C. Department of Transportation, D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities in Washington D.C are doing in the nation’s capital. DC DOT’s GoDCgo lets businesses design custom bike racks for $500-$1500 (+ free installation) that make the sidewalks prettier and the brand’s footprint more unique. As of today, there are 350 in the city. Read more by DCist’s Martin Austermuhle here. Check out the specifics about GoDCgo’s BikeBrand Your Biz. Photos by Martin Austermuhle and Golden Triangle BID.
