We ran south to the end of the island and back again, passed our starting point and continuing on to S. Fredericksburg Avenue where we turned around and ran back. The bike lane was wide and there was plenty of space to accommodate the numerous runners, cyclists and walkers. Our route took us by what must be some of the finest homes in the area. The homes were beautiful, the lawns were well landscaped, and the streets were clean. I saw only a very small amount of trash. We even saw a street sweeper actively going about the business of cleaning the streets as we ran.
Apparently it's a requirement to have two children in Margate City and when you do you must strap them into a jogging stroller and push them along the bike lanes. During our short run, Scott and I saw four double jogging strollers being pushed by either a man or a woman. No single strollers, just double strollers. Another point worth noting is that these kids all seemed to be larger than your standard 2 year old.
