The bike path along Melnea Cass is one of those routes in Boston that was somehow created years ago despite any larger provisions for bicycles in the city at the time. It's also in been in awful condition ever since I first rode on it 4 or 5 years ago. I don't ride on it too often, so I'm not sure how recent a development this is, but I noticed yesterday that a small portion has been recently re-paved. There are still many areas that need A LOT of work, but hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Melnea Cass is one of those streets that you really don't want to ride on, so the integrity of the path is crucial here.

Happy Riding

I was really excited about Boston’s plans for a bike share program. There was news a while back that the city had selected Bixi, the company that operates Montreal’s program, as the vendor for Boston’s program. According to this post, the program was supposed to start in May. Well, May is about to end, and I have not heard a single thing about the program in a long time, nor have I seen any site work around the city preparing for the installation of the bike kiosks.

Something fishy is going on…

Jonathan Simmons, a psychologist in Brookline, has written a beautiful piece today in the Boston Globe. (Article)
Another cyclist was recently stuck and killed (this time in Newton), and the author describes happening upon the immediate aftermath during his afternoon ride. This young man, Andrew Von Guerard was only 21.
We must all remember that it could just have easily have been us, and that we must always be vigilant and ride safely.
Dr. Simmons reminds us that there is no reason why Boston can not compete with cities like NY & Portland when it comes to a radical rethinking in how our streets are designed.
