From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 04.23.07:

It's that time of year again, when spinning two wheels is more appealing than spinning four.

But once you get to where you're pedaling, there's hardly a rack for parking.

The St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation is about to chip away at the problem. The organization just received a $50,000 federal grant to install between 200 and 300 more bicycle racks in St. Louis and St. Louis County in the next year.

Bicycling is gaining steam in St. Louis, thanks to rising gasoline prices and more bicycle lanes. Still, when it comes to cycling, St. Louis is no Chicago. The Windy City always seems to land on Bicycle magazine's best bicycling places in the United States. (Read more.)
Readers of this blog are well aware of bicyclists' interest in a greater abundance of secure bike parking. Great news for bicyclists in St. Louis.
