Cambridge Bike Safety Update

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 20

Got this in the email from the Cambridge Bike Safety Folks:

 

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season. We’re excited to report that planning for the Spring protected bicycle lane pilots is now in full swing. We want to thank everyone that helped us get to this point – without everyone who turned up to city council, writing to councillors, spreading the word, the network would not be on the table.

In December, the city installed pop-up protected bike lanes on Mass Ave in Central Square near the Mass and Main intersection, and north of Harvard Square, in front of the Harvard Law School. As planning for the spring network of popups ramps up, we want to express positive feedback to the city about the winter popups and remind them that we are all paying attention to what happens this spring.

It would be very helpful for you to take both of the following two actions:

  1. Contact the city council, the new City Manager Louis DePasquale, and Deputy City Manager Lisa Peterson, and thank them for the winter pop-ups. Even just a short note to thank them for making us safer and to request an expansive network of similar protected bike lanes this spring will go a long way.Email [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and copy [email protected].
  2. Take our short five question survey to provide feedback about the winter pop-ups.

Thanks for your time and stay warm!
Nate, Annie, and other CBS core members

On Tuesday 1/24, the city will be presenting options for the Inman Square redesign. See here for more details.
