Students and teachers who ride their bikes to Ecole Stanley Knowles School now have a new place to safely lock up their rides.
A new enclosed bike rage in Stanley Knowles Park officially opened Tuesday in Point Douglas.
The K-8 school has seen an increase in bicycle theft and vandalism, so officials are hoping the new cage alleviates some of the risk linked to bringing a bike to school.
“With the recent construction of the active transportation routes directly connected to Ecole Stanley Knowles School, there has been an increased need for a safe locking facility for the students and teachers,” said Point Douglas Councillor Vivian Santos.
The bike cage is located on city land at 2286 Inkster Boulevard just south of the school. The $15,000 project includes a 15’ x 30’ enclosed cage, a community bike repair stand and new granular path and pad.
