Bicycle Parking Program

bike racks 001Bicycle Parking Program

Want to attract more cyclists to your downtown, playing fields and open spaces?  Are bicycles locked to poles, fences and the like?  Are the existing bike racks shabby or of the ‘wheel bender’ style?  Sounds like your community needs some updated bike racks!

The MVMPO is pleased to offer our member communities a discount on bicycle racks as part of a statewide joint procurement effort led by MAPC. Approved bike racks are being offered through Dero, Saris and Creative Metalworks.

How does it work?

Step 1: Subscription Form

To participate in the program, first complete and return the Bike Racks Subscription Form. The form must be signed by a person with contracting authority for your municipality. Please sign the form and email a scanned copy to Betsy Goodrich at bgoodrich @

MVPC will send you confirmation after the subscription form is received. You may then begin to select bike parking equipment per the procedure outlined below.

Step 2: Choose Bike Racks

Three vendors were chosen to offer bicycle racks for purchase through the program: Saris, Dero, and Creative Metalworks

Only selected products from the approved vendors are eligible through this program. Each vendor has supplied a special pricelist, which typically includes a 20-40% discount off their respective list prices.

Step 3: Place Your Order

Place your order and arrange shipment directly with the vendor(s) of the particular product(s) that you wish to order. You must pay for the cost of the racks and shipping. You are responsible for installation of the purchased equipment.

The current program ends on December 31, 2017.


Recommendations for Placement

  • Place bicycle racks in places where bicyclists need to park, such as transit centers, libraries, schools, town hall, post office, parks, trailheads, popular bus stops etc.
  • Place them in visible and prominent places.
  • Dero has a helpful guide to rack placement on their web site.
