This guy is making things happen in Dorchester, seems like an awesome guy! I used to live in the very very (very) southern point of Dorchester, and while its gotten better for cycling down there, its not nearly as good as it needs to be.
More great info on Noah and his message here. He is really talking about the real issues behind cycling, as a transit option, and as a life changing technology for low income folks. I hope the city will pivot to focusing on the neighborhoods that most need these kinds of infrastructure improvements and where they will do the most good economically.

Could the bicycle help rebuild Detroit, you bet your ass it can!
Cars are a poison on the local economy, especially in Detroit, the bicycle however builds and supports a strong local economy. This is awesome.

Got this in the email, very peaceful and lovely.
(and before all you grumps get in a fuss, yes I realize there is some sidewalk riding, and some less than stellar helmet use, try to see the big picture, the synergy of life and bicycle, and how the two can make for a lovely journey)

With the well documented and tragic results of large vehicles getting too close to cyclists, this video should get someone fired.
From one of our own awesome BostonBiker.org bloggers Bicycle Canticles.
These personal recording devices, like GoPro, and cell phones are helping to bring clarity to situations that would otherwise be a “he said, she said” situation. But this is damning video evidence of dangerous behavior by a clearly unqualified bus driver. And I can say from personal experience that nearly identical things have happened to me multiple times from bus drivers, I was never able to get this sort of damning video evidence of it though.
