Unique bike racks installed in downtown Vista
Traveling to Vista by bicycle just got easier, but if you’re looking for a traditional bike rack in Vista’s downtown Vista village, you won’t find one. As part of its beautification efforts for the downtown area, the Vista Village Business Association (VVBA) contracted local artists to create four unique bike racks.
Strategically placed, the Beer Mug bike rack is located in front of Mother Earth Brewery on Main Street;the Hwy 395 bike rack is located in front of the Lush Coffee building at Main Street and N. Michigan; the Star bike rack is aptly positioned in front of the Avo Theater on Main Street; and the Butterfly bike rack is conveniently located in front of Yoga Vista and the Yellow Deli on E. Broadway. The VVBA purchased three of the bike racks through a grant from San Diego County’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. The Randall’s donated the Beer Mug bike rack to the city.
