Norwalk Bike/Walk Commission

Established in 2017, the Norwalk Bike/Walk Commission supports bicycling and walking as safe, accessible, and sustainable forms of transportation and recreation that increase the City of Norwalk's livability and economic vitality, and improve public and environmental health.

The Commission has made note of all bike racks in Norwalk and posted these on a Google Drive page, which includes both a map of bike rack locations, as well as a photograph of each of these racks.
