As you may be well aware, Boston has a dedicated, full-time “Cycling Czar.” Nicole Freedman, former pro racer with two U.S. National Championships and a spot at the 2000 Olympics under her belt, took on the role a few years ago. Recently, she published a report “State of the Hub: Boston Bikes Year End Update.” The report reviews all the progress the city has made through the Boston Bikes program since its official start two years ago. You can find the full report here.
The report covers what the program calls the five “E’s” of bicycling planning for Boston – Engineering, Encouragement, Education, Enforcement, and Evaluation. The report is only 16 pages long and full of pictures, charts and graphs. It’s an easy read and well worth reviewing if you are interested in the details of Boston’s plans for cycling.
I also found this blog post to be very helpful. The author is clearly following the developments of the program very closely, and provides a good summary of the report if you don’t want to read the whole thing.
