Bike racks part of larger transportation picture

Oak Bay Serious Coffee won't get new bike racks – yet

A decision on whether to install a new bike rack outside Serious Coffee on Oak Bay Avenue was deferred until the release of a report on sustainable transportation from the municipality’s Community Initiatives Committee, which is expected in the next few weeks. The coffee shop’s owner had submitted a petition which proposed replacing one vehicle parking space with a bike rack to accommodate at least six bicycles. Council felt that approving a new bike rack before learning the findings of the report could mean spending money unnecessarily.
