Moscow Food Co-op Gears Up to Celebrate Pedal Power
Just in time for spring bicycling, the Moscow Food Co-op recently completed the installation of the artful final phase of its array of new bicycle racks, located right in front of the Co-op at 121 East Fifth in downtown Moscow.
Moscow residents Emmett Breedlovestrout and Isaak Strout, a.k.a. The Bicycle Brothers, designed the two sunflower racks, which are next to the store’s 9 other custom-designed but more conventional-looking racks.
The Co-op, which won the Mayor’s Sustainability Award in 2006 for its attention to environmental issues during the remodel of its new home in an older building, made providing ample bicycle parking one of its priorities for the new store.
Funds for the racks were raised with a “Round-Up for Bikes” program at the store’s cash registers, and the Co-op’s sustainability committee took the lead in coordinating the rack’s design, production, and placement.
The Co-op will celebrate bicycles, the ultimate in “green” transportation, with a Pedal Power Party from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at the Co-op.
This global cooling event includes free bike repair, a slow bike race, and prizes for the coolest bikes. This annual celebration is sponsored by the Co-op in partnership with Paradise Creek Bicycles and the Village Bicycle Project.
