I am still rocking out in my head and I’m having a little bit of trouble getting back to the grind of obsessing over bikes, so bear with me. Don’t forget that there is a Morristown Bike Ride this Friday and that there is going to be a super fun picnic afterwards. The bike ride starts at 6:30 from the town hall parking lot. Don’t worry if you don’t have anything to bring or eat, you can just grab something in town!
So! The train station is going to get $3 million in upgrades! When I first heard that my first thought was Cool! We should get Cindy Lauper to come back for the grand re-opening and act out her Time After Time video. Then while I was thinking about that, someone smarter and more on message suggested that some of the money should be used for bike racks and lockers. That made me think about how it is hard to get your bike up on the Dover side, and maybe this is a good time to fix the stairs so they have a ramp to roll your bike on.
Then someone else suggested this is a good time to also the sidewalks and roads under the bridges, which are pretty crappy for everyone. It is also weird that there is no crosswalk signal to the train station. I wonder if some of this stuff could also be fixed under New Jersey’s Safe Streets to Transit program?
What else needs fixing at the station? It doesn’t have to be a bikey thing!
