Bike Racks Coming to Ventnor

Thanks to a $137,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation, Ventnor and Margate will soon be receiving new bicycle racks throughout both communities. The bike racks, which are made in the U.S.A. and will sport various designs, depending on their location, will be placed on public property to address the growing popularity of biking throughout Absecon Island. Diane Birkbeck, a member of the city's green team, was instrumental in moving the project forward. And avid biker, Diane was aware of locations throughout the city where bike racks were lacking and helped pick site-specific designs. For example, the bike rack in front of city hall will feature a large "V". Look for construction and installation to begin this spring.
