Secure Bike Parking

Secure Bike Parking at Sweet Corn Blues FestOften the Closest Parking is Bike Parking

In 2014, Good To Go, and Bike BloNo partners with the Friends of the Constitution Trail to offer secure bike parking at four community events. Here's how it works: Ride your bike to the event and find the secure bike parking area. A Friends of the Trail volunteer will take your bike and give you a number. You enjoy the event for as long as you'd like. Return to the bike parking area to retrieve your bike, turn in your number and a volunteer will bring you your bike. It's that simple and it's free! You can also leave your trunk, seat or handle bar bags, panniers, and helmets with the bike. Need more info, check out a video! While you're there, make sure you get a NEW Constitution Trail map and learn more about the Good To Go Commuter Challenge.

Sustainable Art Delivery

Ride your bike to the Sugar Creek Arts Festival and request free delivery of art you buy at the Festival. We'll make sure art delivery is just as green as your bike ride by using a Town of Normal EV to get your art to its destination. To be eligible 1) you must ride a bike to the Festival, 2) fill out a form at the Friends of the Trail bike parking tent to request art delivery and, 3) the art you purchase at the Festival must easily fit in the EV. Art delivery will start at 5 PM on Saturday and 4 PM on Sunday. This service is possible thanks to the Town of Normal, The McLean County Arts Center, The Friends of the Trail, Bike BloNo and our Good To Go program.

2013 Bike Parking Results

The Friends of the Trail and Good To Go offered bike parking at the Illinois Sustainable Living and Wellness Expo at Illinois Wesleyan University in April and the first Downtown Bloomington Farmers’ Market of the season in May. It was also offered during both days of the Sugar Creek Arts Festival and the Sweet Corn Blues fest in late August. More than 1,000 bikes were parked (and many, many car trips were saved) during our 2013 season.
