One of three bicycle racks on Seminary Street in Carl Sandburg’s hometown, just up the way from the Amtrak station. One adult ticket for the train to Chicago and back: $20.

    A local brewpub in south Broadripple has a bike rack made from old frames. I’ll have to get a picture of it sometime and send it along.

    That’s a pretty “fast” looking bike rack, and very practical – to lean against, instead of risking wheels in the old-fashioned kind.

  3. Really cool! Are these fairly new? I was in Galesburg a few months back and don’t remember seeing them. I know they have a very active City Councilman that is trying to make the town more Bike-Friendly.

    I really dig the “street-art” approach to bike racks. Might inspire people to ride a little more – or at least I would hope.,,
