Boston Mayor Tom Menino started riding a bicycle around his city recently. Like me, he started riding a bicycle after a long hiatus… in his case, 40 years. He states that he rides for health, environment, and a good way to get around the city in an interview with local Fox 25. His ride of choice is the Trek Lime.
A big advantage to bicyclists is that local leaders like Mayor Menino will appreciate the challenges that many of us bicyclists face on the road and will push for ordinances that require pedestrian and bicycle improvementsÂ on local roads. But even more so, I hope they inspire others that haven’t been on a bike in years to tryÂ riding again and remembering how much fun it is to ride.
