Bicycling is a sustainable, fun and healthy way to move about the City of Asbury Park. The City of Asbury Park is making an effort to better balance the use of its streets and to incorporate bicycle facilities to incentivize more people to ride! The greater number of cyclists, the more familiarized drivers will become with bicyclists sharing the streets. Plus, riding a bike reduces the demand for parking in the City.
Bicycles are permitted on the Asbury Park Boardwalk between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. year-round.
February 2017 - The City has installed 10 more bike racks downtown. In addition, 44 more bike racks will be installed at the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The first bike corral will be installed in the City this spring as well
March 2017 - An RFP has been released for a vendor to install, operate and maintain a City-wide bikeshare system.
April 2017 - The City has selected Zagster to install, operate and maintain the bike share system, which is anticipated to launch in Summer 2017. The first two bike corrals have been installed on Cookman Avenue and Emory Street. The New Jersey Department of Transportation has granted the City of Asbury Park a Local Technical Assistance award to create a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan!
