Friends of the Trails is in the process of placing 30 hitch series bicycle racks in the downtown area. The funding was provided by the Illinois Maine Street Program.

The majority of the racks have been placed along Maine Street in the downtown area between 3rd and 12th Street. The bicycle racks each hold two bicycles and are located on city-right-a-way.

If you have not had a chance to use the new bicycle racks, please take the time to ride along Maine Street and see the improvements that have beautified the downtown area and visit the local area businesses.

The bicycle racks are displayed in the picture to the right. They are about 35 inches tall.   There is a portable rack at the Quincy Art Center and at City Hall that are available. We also just collaborated with Hy-Vee on Harrison to place two bicycle racks at their location.

If you are a business within the Quincy area and would like a bicycle rack at your location please feel free to give Jennifer Sousa a call at 217-228-4514 or e-mail her atjearnold@quincyil.gov .

Friends of the Trails does have a limited number of racks left and would be happy to see if the rack can be secured in your location.
