These were installed a couple weeks ago. Have you seen them?

On my way downtown to photograph them! Just watched the video on FaceBook. An AWESOME project from what I see in the video.
They look great and add a lot to Adams Street! Downtown could use about 50 more. I hope they do the Warehouse District ones soon!
I actually like these better than some of the outdoor sculptures I've been seeing around town for a few years. I would buy one of these for my own garden ... especially the bridge shape!
So so so AWESOME. When I'm home for summer I will be checking these out before my escapades at The Attic.
Downtown could indeed use fifty more of these. Absolutely awesome stuff. You'd think places like the Short North down here in Columbus would have awesome stuff like this.
Looks like the plan is to do this in the Warehouse District. Perfect location to accompany the racks in uptown.
From a planning/development standpoint, Toledo should start thinking about how it can connect places like OWE, Uptown, Downtown, and the Warehouse District with bike lanes. Get them in and facilitate growth. One of Toledo's (few) advantages right now is that they have the opportunity to think big and put in place plan frameworks easily since, well, nothing is there (no offense).
Something like this, in 2+ phases (first yellow, then red): https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/554730_4011405569994_1426890041_33607773_164482458_n.jpg
Throwing a bone to the biking community--the local neighborhoods--is promoting a culture that not only lives in Toledo, but also generally goes out of its way to spend its money in, and on, Toledo.
Toledo needs some awesome 4-6ft bike lanes on those roads.
I saw something interesting in Clyde: the usual park-service-type bulletin board at their rails-to-trails bike path, and in the middle was a sign that pointed which way to go for the nearest food, drinks, and stores.
It was a nice touch, especially if people are biking in from farther away and don't know their way around (which is what you sometimes get on an old rail line that stretches across several counties).
