Butler, PA, our home town, is rapidly becoming a bicycling town. Not only do we have designated bike routes, we have Friday night community rides, easy access to Rails-to-Trails, and bike racks in front of businesses on Main Street where you can lock your bike while eating or shopping.
Andy and some of his friends (mostly fellow unicyclists) were commissioned to make three bike racks out of recycled bike parts. After working hard, they were ready to install! Mark and I went downtown (in his car, not on bikes) so Mark could help if he could and I could take photos, of course!
The greatest thing about the installation is that the workers showed up ON BIKES!
What do you say when you see a kid pedaling a five foot tall bike with an air compressor on the back? You say, "Hi Andy!"
It was hard work drilling into the sidewalk, but there was lots of people there to give a hand...
