MEDINA – Cyclists in downtown Medina have new spots to tie up their bikes. The Medina Business Association paid for two new bike racks that are shaped like apples.

The Medina Department of Public Works installed the bike racks on Main Street on Monday. A larger bike rack, also shaped like an apple, will soon be set up in the Canal Basin.

“We wanted something that was representative of our area,” said Cindy Robinson, president of the MBA. “We love the design.”

The Business Association worked with Orleans-Niagara BOCES students on the projects. Students submitted designs and fabricated the bike racks. F & H Metal Finishing in Medina painted the bike racks, which were paid with proceeds from MBA events.

Robinson said more of the bike racks could be added to the downtown in the future.
