Hear MassBike On MBTA Platforms!

You can find out more about MassBike’s long history of pushing for bicycles on the T here.

You may also hear spots from Biker Boy, “Boston’s bicycling superhero”. I won’t reveal his secret identity, but you may have seen him at the Boston Bike Safety Summit. He is particularly concerned about bike safety for kids.
