Remember those car-shaped bike racks, which were previously installed by the city downtown and in North Kamloops to encourage cycling?

The city paid $16,000 for two bike racks to hold at least 10 bikes.

They were installed in 2017 in the 300-block of Lansdowne Street downtown and in the 400-block of Tranquille Road on the North Shore.

City sustainability director Marvin Kwiatkowski said one of the racks was damaged and needed repairs. The intent is not to keep them in storage and the city is looking at where to place them.

“There was some concerns, due to the damage, where they need to be located,” he said.

“There was also concerns, if they’re in front of one business and only one business, are we promoting that business?”
