Garcetti Announces Winner of Bike Rack Design Contest
Back in February, we announced that Council President Eric Garcetti, the Bike Writer’s Collective and the CRA were sponsoring a bike rack design contest. Earlier today, Garcetti’s office announced the winner, Forester Rudolph’s SpokesQuotes rack.
Ok, I’m going to admit it took me more than a minute to figure out the design before Garcetti’s staff sent me a draft of the design. I think the coolest part of it is that each rack will have a famous quotation or culutural truism to reflect the diversity of East Hollywood. In the picture above, the words "Rice is not cooked with only words" are engraved on the rack.
So, where will the racks actually go? Assuming they get approved by various city agencies, approximately two dozen bicycle racks will be constructed and installed on Hollywood Boulevard between Western and Vermont as part of the comprehensive East Hollywood Streetscape Plan scheduled to begin later this year
