Looking for Cyclists to Share Crash Stories
I am a journalism student at Northeastern University. I am writing an article about bicycle safety in Boston – focusing on the fatalities in the past two years as well as the new policies and infrastructure the city has introduced to improve cyclist safety. I’m looking to speak with cyclists from the Boston area who have been involved in crashes with other motorists and would be willing to share their story and possibly discuss what changes/actions they’d like to see from the city. Interviews should only take 10-15 minutes. If you are interested, I can be reached at [email protected] Thank you in advance for your help in covering this important topic.

Hello, I’m preparing a video shoot about a recent Boston City Council initiative to expand bicycle infrastructure in the city of Boston. I’m looking for knowledgeable cyclists who would be interested in speaking on camera, about what investments the city of Boston should make to create a safer and more accessible city for cyclists, as well as any testimony about the condition and safety of the cities bike paths as they stand today. If you’re interested in participating or have any questions, please get in touch with me at [email protected]
