- Mayor Menino wants Boston to be bicyclist’s dream
Boston Mayor Tom Menino is hiring a bike czar and a first phase of improvements around the city is to include 250 new bike racks and an online map system. Future possibilities mentioned include shower facilities, bike storage areas, and automated bike rental systems that make wheels instantly available to anyone with a credit card. It would be great if Boston goes all the way with this and then maybe other cities around New England would follow the trend too. If you consider things like skyrocketing energy costs, global warming, increasing obesity rates in the US and how bad traffic is in some cities, doing things like this should be a no-brainer.
