BICYCLE ENFORCEMENT MEASURES
Beginning June 20, 2020
Despite the changes that the Town made with the addition and various placement locations of 36 bicycle racks, the increase of bicycles encroaching private and Town property has grown exponentially.
Property owners and visitors have contacted the Town to express their concerns regarding safety hazards with bicycles parked on beach walkways and left laying alongside streets, as well as the total disregard of bicycles locked to, or abandoned on, private and Town property.
Beginning June 20, 2020, the following will be enforced:
1. Bicycles not placed in racks will be moved and relocated to the closest available rack.
2. Bicycles chained to Town property such as signposts, streetlights, beach walkways, sand fence, etc., will be removed and taken to the closest available rack. The Town is not responsible for the damage, disappearance, replacement or reimbursement of bicycles or bicycle locks.
3. Bicycles with carts that are parked in locations other than permitted cart locations, will be moved, and relocated to the closest available bike/cart rack located at: Anchorage @ Rt. 1, N. 6th St. lot, and South end of Ocean Dr.
The Town encourages bicycling and walking; however, everyone must be respectful of private and Town property and must utilize bicycle racks for parking!
ALL BICYCLISTS MUST PARK THEIR BIKES WITHIN A BIKE RACK
