Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo is sacrificing downtown parking spots to make more space for bikers. The city will add 12 "on street" bike spots in front of Cityscapes.

This is part of the plan to become more suited for bikers. Soon, it's planning on having more bike lanes on streets coming into downtown. The bike racks will cost about 800 dollars.

“If you would assume that each one of these 12 people would otherwise maybe be driving a single car at 20 feet per car, that's 240, which is almost the entire block.”

The racks will only be up during summer.
