Me: Riding happily down the new Watertown Greenway on a gorgeous day, enjoying getting from Mt Auburn street to Arsenal without dealing with all the icky cars.*
You: A mall full of shops, anchored by a national store that some call Tar-zhey. So close and yet so far, the lovely new bike path circled your perimeter, and even had signs pointing to you saying "Mall", but no access pathway to the door so tantalizingly close.
If you're reading this, maybe you can make a 10 foot connector from your parking lot to the path, put in some bike racks on that side of the mall, so we can get together and I can get some shampoo and new curtains, and you can get my money!
All humor aside, I did talk to the manager at Target about the possibility of getting some kind of connection. She was interested and suggested that I also write the general manager. I'm sure it actually depends on the mall, but if their anchor tenant is supportive, I hope they will be too. I might cc DCR who actually manages the path to explain that even though the mission is recreation, there might be some side benefit to helping provide transportation too.
*(Ok, that's not actually me in the picture- it's a kid who was biking by while I was standing in the parking lot)
