Sponsor a Bike Rack

Do you want more to see more bike parking in Minneapolis?  Are there businesses you visit that simply don't have enough parking to meet the demand?  Here's your chance to do something about it!


The City is switching from the old-style parking meters to a new pay station system in Downtown (including North Loop), Uptown, the West Bank, Dinkytown and Stadium Village.  This makes it possible to transform the existing meter posts into bike parking.


Thanks to a 50/50 cost match from the City, you can sponsor turning a parking meter into a bike rack in any of the above neighborhoods for only $50 per meter.


You have two options:

  • Preferred: Fill out this form and send with a check for $50 payable to Dero Bike Rack Company to: Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, c/o Janne Flisrand, 2112 Dupont Ave. S, #2, Minneapolis, MN 55405.

  • Donate via PayPal here. The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition will pass along any payments directly to sponsor bike racks through the City's program. We recommend $50 donations, but you can choose the amount that works for you. If you (or you and a friend) donate $50 you may select a specific meter location. Please note the meter number in the donation notes, and list all donors if you go in with a group.
