bicycles

Bicycles can be ridden on downtown streets. They can only be walked and parked on downtown sidewalks within the Central Business District. Hunter green bike racks are available for the public at 10 downtown locations. These have been supplied by the Monroe DDA in an effort to reduce the use of trees and light poles to lock up bikes. Further information about the City of Monroe Bike Ordinance can be obtained from the Police Department at 734-243-7521.
