New 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.
