FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 7, 2017
(Huntsville, AL) – There’s a shiny new addition to the Huntsville/Madison County Visitor Center®, and it’s a welcome sight to those exploring Huntsville on two wheels. Located on the Cleveland Avenue side of the Visitor Center is a custom new bicycle rack, ready to greet both local and visiting cyclists alike.
The rack was created by national company Dero Bike Racks and was installed by City of Huntsville employees.
The addition of the bike rack comes as part of an ongoing community initiative to make cycling in Huntsville easier, safer, and a more readily available choice of transportation.
“We’re making sure our Visitor Center is accommodating to all our guests, regardless of the mode of transportation that brings them here,” said Judy Ryals, President/CEO of the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB). “Cycling in Huntsville is becoming an increasingly popular way for visitors to explore our city, and with the addition of our bike rack it will be easier than ever for them to access the resources we provide at the Visitor Center.”
The recent introduction of the Downtown Huntsville BlueBikes program, a bike sharing program offered through the Zagster mobile app, makes the new addition especially timely.
The Huntsville/Madison County Visitor Center® is located at 500 Church Street NW and is open seven days a week.
