UPDATE: The sign says no bike riding in the business district. It says nothing about sidewalks. I would be totally fine if it said sidewalks. Even if I am wrong, they should be changed. People are asking me if the signs are new. I have never seen them before and I notice EVERYTHING.
I am not telling you to bike on Park Avenue, but I do and still will. I feel comfortable doing it. Don’t bike there if you don’t feel comfortable. Cars and Bikes are supposed to share the roads. Park Avenue is not a highway.
Are these signs illegal? They look fairly new, so I am assuming this has to do with that traffic study the city is selling us on. Allison Box, where are you?
I do not like the direction the city is going with this. What the city is basically doing is killing our local businesses, because I rely on my bicycle to shop locally. I guess I will hop in my car, get fat and shop in Island Park.
Wow…. what a way to bring complete streets to Long Beach. More like complete bullshit. The entire country is figuring out ways to bring bikes to our streets. Long Beach? Nope. Let’s live in the 1950s. Look at Manhattan or Brooklyn as examples. If they can do it there, they can do it anywhere!
