Very important meeting tonight at Boston BPL about bike lanes on Mass Ave from Boyleston to the Harvard bridge. 7pm.
To do bike lanes right, I think they're going to have to remove some on-street metered parking. This is NOT going to be popular among business owners and drivers.
We cyclists need to establish a significant demand for these lanes to encourage the city to make them happen. Please try to make it, even if you can't stay for the whole time.
Given that there are (or will be?) lanes on Mass Ave on the East side of Boyleston, and there are bike lanes across the bridge and into Cambridge, this will be a vital link in the bike network.
Getting the lanes patrolled to stop double parking? Well, that's another fight.
