Vienna, Illinois: Home of the Big Bike

An oversized old-tyme high wheel bicycle stands next to the town museum. Made of spindly, rusty iron; it's not a real bike.
298 E. Vine St., Vienna, IL
Just east of town, on the north side of IL-146/E. Vine St., on the east side of the old Forman Depot.

Home of the Big Bike

This is the "Home of the Big Bike." Every year the town hosts a 100 mile run. This huge bicycle is at an old depot/museum (Forman Depot Museum) and Vienna City Park, which is where the race starts. Vienna is the Bicycling Capital of Illinois (self-proclaimed, I'm sure ).
