Find a bike rack, find a business.
When you’re out and about, use VeloRacks to find bike racks around your current location. Once you’ve found a bike rack, see information about the rack and check out many of the local businesses near the rack. You can also use the About Me map to search the city for bike racks – simply move the map to a location (within the city of Seattle), and scan for bike racks. You’ll be able to see all kinds of information about a bike rack, and all of the nearby businesses.
Have a bike rack you visit frequently? Mark it as a favorite! Gain quick and easy access to your favorite bike racks throughout the city. You can also use this feature before you leave – just start up the app, move the map to your desired location, find a bike rack and mark it as a favorite. Your list of favorites will be accessible while your out on the town.
Google Places has been integrated into the application to give you information on businesses near bike racks. Simply choose a bike rack, and see many of the businesses near to that rack. Many different types of businesses have been included such as restaurants, cafes, banks, and more. We give you the address of business and show you how far away it is from your current location. Very handy if you’re new to an area.
