Re: Biking in Boston

Getting from the Back Bay to 93 South is not easy. The Mass Ave stretch is a major corridor for that traffic. There are a lot of people who go that route and the slower the traffic moves the more automobile traffic will back up on to other roads. I don't understand why access to 90 East was never created from the Back Bay, but there is really no good way to get to 93 at this point in time.

Personally, I don't think biking is safe in a city...with or without bike lanes. Obviously the greater speed differential between autos and bikes the greater danger. My opinion is you are a whole lot safer on a motorcycle or a scooter. That may not be politically correct, but it is based on honest observations from the driver's seat and a bike.
