A new Ankeny landmark will be sticking around.

City public works and communications staff created the Ankeny bicycle sign last year to welcome riders on the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. RAGBRAI passed through Ankeny last July on the route's fourth day. The sign, which spells out the city's name in big block letters surrounded by a pyramid of bicycles, sits at the Northwestern Trailhead off Northwest Irvinedale Drive.

The bicycle sign was intended to be a short-term feature for RAGBRAI and not constructed to be permanent. But the installation has been well-received by community members, according to city documents, and city officials have now taken steps to formally approve its location.
