Now that summer is officially here, more people are riding their bicycles. The City encourages the use of bicycles as a logical alternative to the automobile to local amenities. The City also welcomes patrons downtown to visit the many restaurants, art galleries, and shops. However, please note that riding bikes on downtown sidewalk is prohibited. Due to the large number of pedestrians walking, diners eating outdoors, and shoppers stepping out of shops, the sidewalk is not a safe place to ride a bicycle. For everyone's safety, the City asks you to dismount and walk your bicycle on downtown sidewalks. Thank you for your cooperation.
Riding a bicycle on downtown sidewalks is punishable by a $100 fine.
