You have noticed a few more bike racks around Alexandria.

Since May, Alexandria’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services (T&ES) has installed a little over 200 new bike racks around the city, already more than double the usual amount of bike racks installed each year.

Many of the new bike racks are along major roadways, with some concentrated on Mount Vernon Avenue running up through Del Ray into Arlandria.

“Recent projects have included the installation of bicycle corrals in Old Town, Del Ray, Fairlington, and Arlandria, as well as bicycle parking spaces near Alexandria schools,” T&ES said on the project website.

A detailed breakdown of the new bicycle rack locations is available on the T&ES website. Bicycle racks can also be requested on the website.
