We even had [...]
Tweetthough not a bicycle accident, the sad and untimely death of Andrew McAfee, age 50, an emergency-room physician and epidemiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, is a reminder that all those who use 2-wheeled transportation are vulnerable to cars. Be careful out there folks!

Bike lanes have been painted from Packard’s Corner to BU Bridge! Another piece of the thermoplastic puzzle is down! Fresh 5-ft wide path down the street! That means, except for a few major intersections like Kenmore Sq, we can bike all the way from Allston [...]
