Jefferson City will be seeing new bike racks installed around town.

The goal is to make Jefferson City more welcoming to visitors and bicyclists.

"We thought bike racks would be a great place to put around town so people can safely park their bikes," said Tina Shoemaker, head of the Discover Jefferson City foundation.

The project is run by the foundation and the Jefferson City Convention and Visitors Bureau.

"We thought it was a great opportunity for Jefferson City to become a biker friendly community," Shoemaker said.

MoBikeFed comment: The bike racks are just one of the steps Jefferson City is taking to become more bicycle friendly.

The City has recently adopted a regional bicycle plan, installed its first bicycle lanes, and is working on potential trail connections to bridge the Katy Trail and Rock Island Trail through the city.

Jefferson City will be giving presentations and talking about the steps they are taking to become more bicycle friendly at the upcoming 2017 Active Transportation Summit in Jefferson City August 11th, 2017:
