Rode the long way in along the river this morning to check them out. Decided to ride over and come back just to check them out, and the experience is SO much better than before. In my ride to the bridge, I had just seen a brave and very fast guy riding across the River street bridge vehicularly, and was thinking how scary that must have been. Fortunately on BU, now there's a better option. (And someday there will be a better option on River too I hope). UPDATE: lots of great photos (including this one of me in full transpo-geek mode) on the livable streets flikr page.
Livable Streets Alliance volunteers on the Boston side were out handing out "thank you" postcards to send to Mass DOT and breakfast.
On the ride from there to work, I ran into Mark, a friend that I've met through the blog and got to chat and say hi, which is nice. It's great to be able to run into friends while traveling through a big city, and even nicer, when on a bike to be able to pull over and chat for a moment or two- hard to do that in a car.
