Recently our local govment issued an invitation for art-like bicycle racks that could be placed throughout the area. Not only to offer places to park bicycles but to draw further attention to the existence of racks and bicycles. My understanding is the response was underwhelming.
Bottom line - even though someone in the community invited David Byrne to submit his racks - art racks are anything but imminent.
At a recent meeting of bicyclists David Byrne's New York City racks were discussed. Not everyone in attendance knew of them. Here, thanks to the Bicycle Diaries attention to the matter - is a NYC tour of the David Byrne Racks.
Too bad they didn't ride their bikes from rack to rack.
