When we sat down to plan our campaigns for this year, we wanted to help East Boston become more bicycle friendly. East Boston is geographically separated from the rest of Boston and this poses a special challenge.
Previously, we worked with youth from NOAH (an awesome group of young people) on our Boston neighborhood bikeability study. Our collaboration was so successful that we decided to continue working towards making East Boston more bike friendly. From looking at ways to make taking bikes on the Blue Line easier, to figuring out where bicycle infrastructure is needed in East Boston, to fighting for good routes in and out of East Boston by bike, NOAH and MassBike have a lot planned.
This weekend we are working again with NOAH, this time providing bicycling information and valet bike parking for the 7th Annual Chelsea Creek River Revel. Come by our booth and learn about the other projects we are planning for East Boston.
Don’t know how to get to East Boston by bike? Take your bike on the Blue Line to Maverick Station, then ride a few minutes to the festival. Want to experience what it’s like getting to East Boston by bike right now? Take the long way through Everett and Chelsea – then you’ll see why this campaign is so vital.
If you live in East Boston or want to help, attend the public meeting on the Central Square project on Tuesday, July 27th.
