The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency began retrofitting the 60 unused poles on Wednesday to include a metal ring that cyclists can park and lock their bikes to, according to a statement.
The new ring-shaped racks will provide parking for cyclists in areas where single space car meters are being replaced with new multi-car meters in the Civic Center and Golden Gateway area.
SFMTA has installed more than 400 sidewalk bike racks, and five on-street bike corrals, the statement said. The organization has plans to install five more bike corrals before the end of this year.
