City wants input on where to place new bicycle racks

bikesNew bicycle racks will be installed throughout Milford in an effort to enhance the city’s Bike-able City Initiative, Mayor Ben Blake announced this week.

While several locations at municipal buildings and beaches have been identified for the installation of new racks, the mayor is seeking the assistance of residents to help select appropriate and accessible sites for additional bike racks.

Bike Walk CT recently conducted a state-wide survey to determine how friendly each town’s pathways are to bike and, Milford ranked in the state’s top 10% of bike-able communities, city officials said.

“Milford offers our cyclists 17 miles of shoreline to tour; the popular annual event ‘Folks on Spokes’ has helped establish several well-marked routes around Milford,” Blake said.  “This is a community initiative and we look forward to the feedback we receive from residents.”

To submit abike rack location suggestion, send an email to MilfordBikeRacks@ci.milford.ct.us.

The city will keep a running list and will continue to expand on this initiative. The bike racks were designed by Dero and the complimentary logo was created by Milford designer Rob Kurfehs.

    The Mayor needs to focus on making safe bikeways before putting up bike racks….Rte162 is a shoreline road but is very bike unfriendly. Not until you hit the West Haven line is the shoulder wide enough to ride a bike safely. Also, there is the Gulf Street hill going up toward Welch’s Point, there is the Bayview Beach Area…as well as East Broadway going down to Silver Sands…Wonderful Coastline, but severely lacking any shoulders for pedestrians or cyclists.

    Build someplace that’s sheltered from the rain.

    Will the author of this article not put a period after giving out the email address?
    Yes, there should be a period at the end of every sentence however, putting a period at the end of an email address makes it seem like its part of the address.
    If someone does a copy and paste it won’t work.
    Better to leave it out.
