Re: Biking in Boston

It is difficult to impossible and often times reckless to bike in Boston for about four months of the year. Snow and ice eat into quite a bit of the available road and parking space. In a perfect world we could redesign Boston like a simcity game and there would be ample space for bikes. Mass Ave in the South End is a very heavily traveled artery on which cars move at a high rate of speed. For the efficient flow of traffic in Boston this is necessary. I'm not a car advocate by nature. I think Congress Street should be narrowed dramatically. By and large I favor pedestrian oriented traffic planning. For this reason I can't stand the traffic pattern in the SBW. That said, in some situations cars must take priority.
