BikeparkingThe City of Winston-Salem has purchased 125 standard bike racks and installed them on streets, at public buildings and some schools in the city, and in other municipalities in Forsyth County. The city will continue to evaluate and install bike parking as funding becomes available.

Cleverly designed art bike racks are also appearing in Winston-Salem, funded by private organizations. These racks were designed and built by Zach Lail of Mock Orange Bikes. You'll see them at several downtown locations, including 4th Street, Trade Street, 5th Street, 3rd Street, and Cherry Street.River Run Bike Rack

Businesses and other organizations are encouraged to add appropriate bike parking at their facilities, following guidelines from the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals "Bike Parking Guide." Matthew Burczyk, City Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, can advise on the design and placement of bike parking. Family Services, Inc. on South Broad Street was one of the first to add a unique bike rack.
