I support installing a cycletrack on the full length of Beacon Street in Somerville!
I believe the community can work together to find creative ways to preserve parking for businesses and residents by improving parking regulations and sharing Beacon Street’s many parking lots, and thus be able to install a cycletrack that will help reduce cyclist injuries.

I have had a very good problem lately, it has been hard to keep up with all the new bike lanes going in! Seems like they are going to be putting them in on Comm. Ave, and North Harvard, and Columbus Ave. Huzzah! If you see new lanes popping up, shoot me an email.
I also saw what looked like new bike lanes being painted on River street coming over from Allston into Cambridge. At least I think they are new bike lanes there was no markers on them, and frankly I wouldn’t be sad if they were not bike lanes, cause the shoulder on River is really rough, and I would hate to think they were gonna put a bike lane over that mess…sorry no picture yet of these, will keep you posted. We are still very far from a complete system of bike lanes and bike infrastructure, but every long journey starts with single step…I am pleased to see we have taken a couple small steps lately.

I love when people email me events, I especially love when they are very clear with what the event is and isn’t, for instance.
I for one welcome this new anarchy free celebration of bikes! Check it out.
Ladies and Gents:
The second annual Brookline Bikes Beacon parade is this Sunday, May 31, at 12:30 pm.
WHAT IT ISN’T: it isn’t a race, a charity ride, a protest, nor an opportunity for anarchy.
WHAT IT IS: a slow paced 5 mile ride from Amory Park (near Audobon
Circle) outbound on Beacon Street to Cleveland Circle, then back, with police escorts. It’s a celebration of bikes, a way to show folks that citizens of all stripes ride bicycles for all sorts of reasons.
I hope you’ll join us for a slow ride bike parade, followed by ice cream sandwiches and a Beatles cover band.
