Help Us Find Brantford’s Bike Racks

Can you help? We are looking for the location of any bike racks in Brantford not currently on our map. (The map is located here). If you only fill out the first item on the form below, we'll be happy. If you are able to fill in any of the other fields, that's a bonus.

Multiple bike rack locations can be submitted by filling-out and submitting the form for each one.

We will also happily accept bike rack photos - please email them to brantfordbikeracks@gmail.com and let us know where this bike rack is located.

Thank you for helping with this project!
