Boston Bikes!!!

Lots of exciting things are happening with bikes in Boston these days.   Fenway Civic Association strongly supports the use of alternatives to single occupancy vehicle transportation.    The Fenway has one of the lowest rates of vehicle ownership in the city of Boston, and the majority of our residents use bicycles and other alternative modes of transportation on a regular basis.

FCA is proud to support Boston Bikes, and was pleased to participate in the review of their recent proposal for the addition of bicycle lanes to Massachusetts Avenue.  Check out FCA’s letter of support and design suggestions on our Bulletin Board here.

FCA looks forward to the implementation of the City’s bike-sharing program, Hubway, set to launch in July.  Check out the recent Boston Globe articles on the program here and here.  Having just returned from seeing the wild success of a very similar program in Washington, D.C., this board member can’t wait for Boston’s program to start!

Finally, Boston Bike Week is coming up, May 15 – 20.  Check out the website here for information on all the exciting events.    The kickoff party will be held right here in Fenway, at Giant Cycling World on Kilmarnock Street  (Sunday, May 15, from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm).    We hope to see you there!
