Bike Friday, Boston

Bike Friday Boston 2008
SAFE, GUIDED CONVOYS WITH POLICE ESCORT Lead by experienced cyclists and escorted by Boston Police, convoys follow a fixed schedule and route and originate at locations throughout metro-Boston. All convoys finish at City Hall Plaza Boston.

Yesterday was Bike Friday, a chance for cyclists new and old to try commuting by bike with a police escort. It was a lot of fun and I was excited to meet Nicole Freedman, and Mayor Tom Menino himself!

Nicole, my friend Dorothy Fennell of MassBike, and I were all very excited together about the changing nature of the Boston bike culture. Go Boston!

Hi, i'm Nicole's intern at Boston Bikes, and I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog! It's great to see people breaking free of the tyranny of spandex, and riding in comfortable clothes at a comfortable speeds is one of the best ways to fall in love with cycling.

You mean "led" by experienced cyclists. Sorry. My pet peeve.

Anonymous, you're completely right - and that is a cut-and-paste citation from the Bike Friday site, which is why it's set off in block text.
