City-installed bike corral at Sydenham and Walnut. Johnny Brenda's and Kung Fu Necktie are seeking to have similar corrals installed.

Last night residents of South Kensington voted in support of Kung Fu Necktie‘s efforts to have the City install in-street bike parking at the venue, according to Philly Bicycle Coalition Communications Coordinator Nicholas Mirra. Johnny Brenda’s is also looking to take advantage of the City’s offer to install free bicycle street parking at interested businesses. The community vote for JB’s will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 21st at the Fishtown Rec Center, 1202 E. Montgomery Ave. To vote, you must live or own a business within the Fishtown Neighborhood Association boundaries or within a quarter mile of Johnny Brenda’s. More information about the meeting is available on the Bicycle Coalition’s blog. With community approval, the issue will next go to City Council who will vote to decide if bike corrals should be installed at the venues.
