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.
