Provincetown allows bicycles to be parked in the public way on bike racks or street sign poles – as long as your bike doesn’t block the sidewalk.
Lots of businesses have bike racks specifically for their customers or guests and there are informal bike parking locations for short stops where there are no racks. Outside of the town center, you’ll find bike racks at town nature trails and conservation areas and in the parking lots in the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Again, don’t block the sidewalk or lock to a tree, railing, fence, telephone pole, bench, or other street furniture. The police can cut your lock and take your bike without any notice if it’s in the way.
In addition to pedal bicycles, the town allows electric pedal-assist bicycles (e-bikes), motorized bicycles, and personal mobility devices to park at public bike racks.
Any bike parked in the same spot for more than seven days is considered “abandoned” and may be removed. If your bike is missing, please contact the Police Department at 508-487-1212.
