      This is in front of the Chicago Heights park district headquarters and library so I'm guessing the same time those were built. 1970s?

      Yes, two of my three bikes are fixies. The third is a 8-speed internal gear hub cargo bike.

      I am writing a report for Chicago Heights to improve their bike parking situation. I post this not to single them out but to show some of the weird stuff I've encountered in the last year writing bike parking plans for 10 municipalities.
