Bostinno reports: “City Councilor Felix Arroyo will take two-wheels to work at Government Center Thursday in order to raise awareness about the need for safe cycling in the Hub—and he wants residents to join him.”
Arroyo’s bike trek from the Forest Hills MBTA Station to City Hall at 8 a.m. will come just hours before a meeting between elected officials about the importance of making Boston a “world class” bike city; one that’s safe for those who choose to skip the T and opt out of hopping behind the wheel in order to get around.
“We have many cyclists in our city and it is our responsibility to ensure that we make our city as safe as possible for cycling,” Arroyo said in a statement. “I am asking for people to join me on my bike ride to work to bring attention to the issue. The hope is that the ride and the hearing will result in improvements that will prevent cycling injuries, sometimes fatal, from happening on our streets.”
Last month, Arroyo and City Councilor Ayanna Pressley filed a motion for a hearing to explore ways to improve bike infrastructure in Boston and make it a more “liveable city.”
I don’t have more details, but I imagine that if you show up at forest hills t-stop at 7:30am you can ride your bike to city hall with Arroyo. Fun!
