GREENFIELD — The arrival of more than a dozen brightly colored bicycles festooned with flowers and boa feathers in downtown Greenfield must surely signal that spring is here.
Greenfield Main Street Inc.’s inaugural Bikes in Bloom project rolled out last weekend to promote the city’s 16 downtown bike racks, highlight downtown beautification efforts and, incidentally, herald the arrival of spring.
