This morning Discover Main Street committee members were out measuring the location and making plans for a new bike corral and bike repair station that will be installed on the Clarence Bike Path at the Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market. The installation of the bike corral is another step taken in making Main Street Clarence a bike-friendly community. The new corral will be dedicated on Saturday, July 9th.
The bike corral is essentially a large bike rack that can accommodate many bikes. It will also feature two seating benches. The corral will be designed by acclaimed artist/sculptor Mark Griffis. Griffis has installed numerous bike corrals throughout Buffalo. The Clarence Rotary is funding the bike corral. In addition to the corral will be a bike repair station that will aid cyclists in making repairs or adjustments to their bikes when riding in Clarence. The Clarence Hollow Association is funding the repair station.
The bike corral and repair station project has been a tremendous collaboration between community organizations and private businesses, including the Clarence Bowling Academy – owners of the Clarence Hollow Farmers’ Market property.
