Until 2006, the conscientious bikers heading for the diverse array of businesses on the corner of North Winooski Avenue and Pearl Street tied their bikes to the trees and garbage cans lining the street.  When a request for a bike rack was sent to the Department of Public Works, their Environmental Planner for pedestrians and bicycles saw the potential to further promote Burlington’s reputation as a bicycle friendly city and incorporate the street’s creative character by turning the rack into a public art project.
