A new summer season is now upon the Town of South Bethany. We would like to provide everyone with some very important reminders. No bikes, wagons or other modes of transportation should be placed in beach access areas or left protruding into the streets. Beach access ramps and streets must remain clear so that emergency vehicles and apparatus have clear access for any necessary emergency. The Town has placed numerous bike racks on the east side of Route 1 for those that prefer to ride their bikes to the beach. All bicycles must be parked at bike racks located within the Town’s right-of-way. It is unlawful for bicycles to be parked on private property and property owners have the right to remove them. Bicycles should not be chained or locked to street signs, fencing, or poles. Please be respectful of private property and park your bicycle in designated locations.
