BICYCLE COALITION: One down, one to go for bike corrals in Fishtown

Editor's note: This is presented as a content partnership with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.

Many would argue that one thing missing from all the food, music and general merriment that goes down nightly at Johnny Brenda's and Kung Fu Necktie in Fishtown is a secure place to leave your bike.
Last week, Kung Fu Necktie earned community support for its bike corral and tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 21) is a chance for local residents to make sure it become a reality for JB's, thanks in part to the City of Philadelphia's offer for in-street bike parking to interested businesses.
All Fishtown residents and busienss owners should head to the Fishtown Rec Center (1202 E. Montgomery Ave.) tonight at 7 to support the JB's corral. Folks should bring proof of residence or business ownership. 
Philadelphia has released a draft versino of its Complete Streets Design handbook, which aims to account for all road users in road construction projects.
That means adequate sidewalks, travel lanes, bike lanes and curb extensions/bump-outs.
Want your voice heard? Your community can request a briefing from the Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities. Send comments and questions to Ariel Ben-Amos ([email protected]).
A new weekend bike policy was issued for the Atlantic City Line last two weeks ago, as NJ Transit will permit 12 bikes per train, a policy also in effect for rail lines in North Jersey ending in Hoboken or Newark. 

THE BICYCLE COALITION OF GREATER PHILADELPHIA has been making the region a better place to ride a bike through advocacy, education, and outreach since 1972. The nonprofit, membership organization's programs include Bike Philly, the Bicycle Ambassadors, Safe Routes Philly, the Complete the Schuylkill River Trail campaign, and Neighborhood Bike Works (now an independent organization). Follow the Bicycle Coalition on FacebookTwitter, and on their blog.
