Village bicyclists, unite!

Dunkin’ Donuts on North Ave. could use its own bike rack, evidenced last June when my husband and I went for coffee one Sunday morning.

At a recent gathering of our Barry’s (Pub) Runners club, a running buddy and I were discussing how the Village of Webster could really use some bike racks.

The only one we have in town right now (and you probably don’t even know it’s there) is a small one on Lapham Park at the corner of East Main, outside where Mac 5 Bikes used to be. Not big enough for more than one — maybe two — bikes, and not very convenient.

I’d love to see a bike rack installed at the gazebo park, one outside Barry’s or Smith Insurance across the street, maybe even one in front of Village Hall.

I’m going to propose just that tonight (Thursday) at the Village Board meeting, and I invite any and all other village biking fans to join me in support. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Village Meeting Hall, 29 South Ave. You can enter off of South, or behind the building off of the parking lot.

And yes, I’ll be riding my bike there.

    Thanks for speaking out for the bikers, Missy. I am one of them; I ride my bike to school regularly, and I ride around the town and village, and on the path. The town needs to become more bike-friendly, for sure. I am super-careful (wear a helmet, use a rear-view mirror), but I’d love more awareness on the part of motorists. As for bike racks, yes! We need them. We also need a regularly maintained bike trail; the trail needs smoothing, and the weeds need to be pulled. Beautification of the trail would pull more bicyclists into town.
