The racks are easy to install into concrete and come with tamper proof hardware says the program. Organizations can receive the bike racks in a variety of colors at no additional cost.

I Bike KNX says any private business, public agency or non-profit in Knox, Blount, Anderson, Jefferson, Loudon or Sevier counties is eligible for the grant.

To apply for the grant, contact Kelley Segars at ambassadors@knoxtrans.org or call 865-215-3815.
