SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

This week's weather will be perfect as organizations and businesses in Sioux City make an effort to make the community more bicycle friendly.

The Southern Hills Scheels store donated $10,000 for decorative bike racks.

That's after donating the same amount in 2011, which purchased this fish-shaped one near Bev's On The River, along with several others across the area.

A Scheels spokesman says the bike racks will have a positive impact on the community.

"These racks not only provide public bicycle parking, but also help and enhance the community and encourage people to pedal to their destination," said Jared Weerheim, Scheels Assistant Store Leader.

The city plans to install 330 on-street bicycle signs, totaling 84 miles worth of bike paths.

The city received $8,200 in donations for the project from Scheels, the Siouxland Trails Foundation, Siouxland District Health, and Siouxland Cyclists.
