There Is No Good Way To Be Hit By A Car…

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 19

But if for some insane reason, you absolutely must be hit by a car, make it like this.

I can’t get over how this mattress soars off this truck, knocks the bike out from under this guy and then he just lands on the mattress…amazing.

Dear drivers, slow down, and tie your bed down better.

BikeyFace On WGBH!

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 06

An excellent piece on winter riding.  I see Bekka about every three days on my way to work.  Its a nice part of my day to see the same cyclists on a daily/semi-daily basis.

She shows just how easy it is to get to work, even in the winter!
