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.
Please do. Always love a good bike rack.
That’s a pretty “fast” looking bike rack, and very practical – to lean against, instead of risking wheels in the old-fashioned kind.
One of the other two was in use, and I’m not sure how any one rack has room for more than four bikes, tops. However, very stylish, and there were three of the racks in the same block.
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.,,
I get over to Galesburg two, maybe three, times a year, but yes, these racks were new to me. Of course there’s no reason to limit the shapes to bicycles. Follow the link below to see what David Byrne did in New York a few years ago.
