if there are 8 locations then why are there only 7 listed at the link above??
Hmmm, if you come to the downtown library you can't miss #8!
Hi there! I went to find the one at Blom today, but unfortunately, I didn't see a rack due to the construction on that block. Will the rack be put back, or is it somewhere else I could find it? Thanks!
It's actually across the street and slightly south, next to the Haymaker Public House.
You would have to walk on the sidewalk to get it.
Are the locations for the bike racks found on Seasonal On-Street Bike Parking (May – November)?
Yep, follow the link in the badge description for a map and list of the bike racks.
Number 5 does not exist
Please ignore my comment. I went out to the one listed at S. Forest and S. University., which does not exist.
Make sure you're using the map of the 8 bike RACKS, not the covered bike lockers. That makes a difference.
The map at the top of the link is confusing. There is a better one at the bottom of the page.
This is so hard
We could not find the Bivouac bike rack yesterday. Has it been moved somewhere else to accommodate Art Fair?
Yes, it seems so. We added a note on this badge up at the top; this week is not a good time to try to find the Bike Racks. Nobody is certain where they went, or if they will return to the same spots. We will reconnoiter next week and update the badge if needed. Stay tuned, and sorry for the frustration!
We found the Bivouac bike rack somewhere else yesterday. I wish I had kept notes, because it wasn't anywhere near Bivouac. Yesterday we were doing badges at Kerrytown and on Main Street and Liberty. I think the bike rack that claimed to be Bivouac was vaguely near Main and Liberty, but I wish I remembered more details than that.
Thanks, Eli! Comments like that let us know how special a place Ann Arbor is, and how hard you all work on this game. :) All hail the #BikeRackComeback
This is SO FUNNY (bike rack comeback!)!! OMG I thought we were so clever, finding all those rack codes, and now I am reading there are 8?! It IS a travel theme and recently I told my child about a time when my mom and I flew to Colorado in the summer and rode our bikes from Copper Mountain to another ski resort! At this writing, that seems harder than trying to find the rest of the rack codes!
All the bike racks are back! (but they switched the one outside Bivouac and the one outside Spencer)
and the one out side Blom is on the other side of the street on the sidewalk farther South than Blom
Thank you so much for this update! We appreciate the recon!
so the one that was at Bivouac is now at Spencer location? I got all of them but the Bivouac one.
Oh, thanks re the Bivouac one. I just walked there and already had that code. Mobile codes! A whole 'nother game!
