In late July, hundreds of shared bicycles and thousands of their users are going to be taking to the streets of Boston on the Hubway Bikeshare system. The City of Boston has ramped up efforts to improve safety and enforcement to improve the car-bicycle interaction, as reported today by The Boston Globe. A crucial addition to this effort, MassBike is partnering with the City of Boston to offer free Bike Safety Classes for Hubway users so that they can bike safely and with confidence.
The free one-hour workshops will go over the rules of the road, strategies for staying safe, and tips for staying comfortable while in the saddle. There will be a question and answer session at the end, and all you need to bring to participate is yourself and an enthusiasm for safer biking.
