Party bike to hit Milford streets

MILFORD >> The city has a new partnership with the Elm City Party Bike, a pedaled sightseeing bike.

Milford is home to the longest shoreline in the state, a downtown, festivals and neighborhoods. Amenities include paddle boarding, theater, shops and dining.

Now residents and tourists alike can take it all in from the unique vantage point of a multi-person bike.

“It’s a natural fit to offer this amenity in one of the most bike-able and walkable cities in the state. The party bike will partner with a number of neighborhoods and organizations to offer an unmatched experience of our many assets. We will continue to be a destination city and look forward to this partnership,” said Mayor Benjamin G. Blake.

The Elm City Party Bike offers groups of eight-15 the ability to visit restaurants while viewing architecture, historical sites, the coast and more.

Each seat on the party bike has a set of pedals, and while an Elm City driver steers the bike, it’s powered by the riders.

Free dates are offered this summer with the hopes the bike becomes a permanent fixture next summer. Get a look when the first pedal kicks off Memorial Day weekend and summer in Milford at 4 p.m. May 25 at City Hall, followed by a pedal downtown 6-8 p.m.

Schedule: June 11, Pirate’s Day, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; July 1, annual fireworks, 4 p.m.-midnight; July 2, Walnut Beach tour, 6-8 p.m.; July 29, Woodmont Day, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; Aug. 5, Walnut Beach tour, 6-8 p.m.; Aug. 6, Walnut Beach tour, 6-8 p.m.; Aug. 19, Oyster Festival, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
