Update: Sunset Triangle Plaza and its accompanying bike corral are now open! If you know a commercial district that could use a bike corral, please fill out our interest form and let us know.
LADOT has installed the City’s second-ever bike corral as a part of Living Street L.A.’s Sunset Triangle Plaza Pilot Project. The Plaza, opening this Sunday, March 4th, is at Griffith Park Blvd between Edgecliffe Drive and Maltman Avenue. Be sure to visit Living Streets L.A.’s website to find out more about Living Streets L.A. and their Streets for People initiative. Grand opening festivities are scheduled to take place from 11 AM – 2 PM. Below the fold, more on our latest bike corral.
Sunset Triangle Plaza Bike Corral
The Sunset Triangle Plaza bike corral contains six of our popular bicycle shaped racks, comfortably accommodating up to 12 bicycles. The corral is located on the southern portion of the Plaza. Businesses surrounding Sunset Triangle Plaza, including Morning Nights (great coffee!) and United Bread & Pastry (great little empanadas and more!), as well as the bi-weekly Farmers Market, will stand to benefit from the additional bicycle parking spaces that the corral will provide. This area is particularly well suited for a bike corral due to high existing bicycling demand and constrained sidewalks. For more pictures of the bike corral and the installation process, see our Flickr set.
More Bike Corrals Coming Soon
Silver Lake’s new bike corral is the second project to come to fruition from our Bike Corral pilot expansion. We are still looking for potential locations throughout the City of Los Angeles for additional bike corrals, so be sure to submit your ideas/suggestions in the comments section below or through our interest form.
