Thats right, Boston may be playing catch up, but it just got it’s very first bike lanes. There will be a media event next Tuesday (August 5th) at 11:00am to announce them.
This will be a press event to announce the new bike lanes on Comm Ave. between Kenmore Square and the BU Bridge. The Mayor will be speaking along with David Watson, MassBike’s executive director. It would be really great if a bunch of bicyclists could show up by 10:45. I don’t know the exact location but just look for the media trucks along that stretch of Comm Ave (my guess would be the plaza in front of Marsh Chapel?)
This should be a fun time, and hopefully a sign of things to come.
EDIT: More details below
Tuesday August 5th
640 Commonwealth Ave
Courtyard, BU School of Communications
Topics: Commonwealth Avenue Bike Lanes, Rack installations…and one
item yet to be announced.
Please feel free to invite cycling friends and family, and bring your
bikes, of course.
