New bike racks on the way


Looking ahead to spring, the town has ordered four sets of bike racks to be installed in the town square and at the Avon Public Library, according to Town Administrator Michael McCue. He said the town expects to receive about $2,100 from the Old Colony Planning Council to pay for the racks. Paul Chenard, transportation planner for the council, said the state is promoting alternative forms of transportation, including bicycles. Providing money for bike racks is a way to help reach that goal, he said. “One barrier to riding a bike is if you have nowhere to lock it up,” Chenard said. “You don’t want to ride if you can’t lock your bike and be sure it will be there when you get back.”
