Reliance Foundry Offers Free Bike Racks to Schools and Non-Profits for Student and Community Bike Parking
January 31, 2012 - News from Reliance Foundry - For immediate release
Written by: Brad Done
Schools, churches, campuses, community groups and non-profit organizations can apply to receive free bike racks from Reliance Foundry through their free bike rack offering.
Reliance Foundry is excited to launch "Take A Stand for Cycling"
-- a campaign to allow schools, churches, campuses, community groups and non-profits the opportunity to receive high quality bike parking stands from their discontinued bike racks offerring
at no charge.
Bicycling has been steadily growing for sport, hobby and commuting over the past decade. With this increase in bike sales comes a need for businesses and communities to offer secure bike parking. Reliance Foundry is continually striving to bring the best products to the public, both in materials and design.
"Reliance Foundry is clearing models from our inventory that have been discontinued to make room for newer models and styles in our product line," said company Vice President, Brad Done. "We have several models of high quality, secure bike parking stands that we will no longer be selling. We want to give businesses the opportunity to purchase these racks at the lowest prices ever, but we also want to do our part to help schools and other community-serving organizations to receive these racks at no cost
for the rack purchase."
The end user would be responsible for paying the shipping charges on the bike racks and would need to have a local contractor provide the installation.
However, receiving the racks themselves for free
could save a school or campus hundreds of dollars, while giving students and local citizens a secure place to park their bicycle.
Schools, campuses, churches and non-profits who would like to contact Reliance regarding receipt of the free bike racks need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. The email should include a brief description of your organization. Once Reliance Foundry acknowledges your organization’s participation, follow the ordering instructions

There are limited quantities of these clearance bike racks available at no-charge. These racks will be given away to recognized schools, churches and other non-profit community organizations while stocks last, on a "first-come, first-serve" basis.
Questions and inquiries can also be made by calling 1-888-735-5680.
