I Am A Lawyer, And I Ride

Here’s a great story from our And I Ride campaign! We are seeking to put a face on cycling in support of a legislative campaign that we are working on this year. You can read the rest of these great bicyclist bios here.

We are still accepting entries, so be sure to read below to find out how to send in your story.

Our next story comes from John.


Where I Ride: Newton to points south and west
How Often I Ride: 5 times per week

My Story:
I am a trial lawyer in Boston. I ride in the early mornings with a group called the Crack O’ Dawn. The people in the Crack O’ Dawn come from all walks of life and include pediatricians, nurses, school teachers and medical researchers. We meet up at 5:45 a.m. in Newton, and depending on the day we either head west or south. I also race with a masters team called 545 Velo, and we target different races around New England. This spring I plan to race at Battenkill, which is a 62 mile race in upstate New York. About 15 miles of the race goes over dirt roads. I can’t say I’m a very talented bike racer, but I do have fun doing it. I have dedicated part of my law practice to advocating for bicyclists’ rights, and I chronicle legal issues relating to cyclists on my blog.
