WABI Burien to roll out Downtown Burien Bike Racks; Seeking Sponsors
WABI Burien announced Friday (April 5) that it has 41 bike racks in production which will soon be installed all over Burien – and these racks are in need of Sponsors!
“We’ve all been waiting a long time for this,” said WABI Burien President Maureen Hoffmann. “WABI-ists have been working hard to see our city populated with bike racks. We smile at the thought of kids and their families growing up with bike racks to lock up to when they ride into town. We believe strongly that the presence of these racks will encourage cycling for exercise, transportation and well-being and will have a positive impact on our local economy.”

SPONSOR A RACK!
Along with the bike racks comes a special opportunity for businesses and individuals to sponsor a rack featuring their name/logo. This offers tremendous visibility and self-promotion.
With only 41 racks available, WABI will be having a “Sponsorship Sprint” on Friday, April 19, starting at 9 a.m. (details here). Prospective sponsors must send an e-mail date-stamped AFTER 9 a.m. on the 19th to get into the queue to vie for one of these prime rack locations.
Here are some photos of the racks:
WABI is also asking for suggestions from the community for locations to add to the list (details here).
“We ask that people look at the interactive map and make a comment or send an e-mail with a wish list of bike rack hot spots,” Maureen added.
