    I'd like to just ask for some community support to ask the Mayor's office to pressure the enforcement of no parking in the bike lanes, particularly in front of the Boston Marriott Hotel at the top of Huntington Ave. There's been a new bike lane painted on that stretch of Huntington, and so far the taxis/buses/trucks are disregarding it and continuing to park right in the new bike lane, forcing cyclists into traffic. It's outrageous. I've written the following message to Boston Bikes to describe the issue, and hope you will follow suit with whatever you feel is appropriate:

    "To whom it may concern:

    The new bike lane that has been established on Huntington Avenue heading towards Copley Square, particularly in front of the Boston Marriott is routinely being blocked by taxis, trucks and buses parked illegally in the bus lane. The vehicles are not actively in the process of loading/unloading, and are not legally occupying the space reserved for bicycle travel. As such, it forces cyclists out into vehicular traffic at a dangerous intersection, especially given the thick metal expansion/contraction plates crossing Huntington Ave that can easily catch a bike wheel and cause the cyclist to fall into moving cars. Please diligently enforce the no parking laws in the bike lane, for the safety of cyclists as well as motorists.

    Thank you."

    The link to report such hazards is as follows: http://www.cityofboston.gov/contact/?id=1791) Stop watching the donkey porn.

    this is something i feel a little conflicted with.
    cars are gonna double park, that's a given (though it shouldnt be). if they are though, i'd actually rather they pull right up to the cars and cut the bike lane off opening the left side of the car lane because there's no chance in hell i'm going to pass a parked car on the right in between other parked cars.
    anyone else feel that way?somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    The bike lane hugs the right side of the road, there's no parking to the right of it. The cars aren't double parked, but are parked directly in it, at least in the part I'm referring to.1) Stop watching the donkey porn.

    ^^Totally. If you gotta double park and park illegally in general, block the bike lane and I'll ride around.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?
  4.  
    Same. It's way safer to just go around, than to potentially get trapped.

    this is not a link but whatever.
    this meeting is tonight!! GO GO GO GO
    dora:this morning I passed Galen on my way to work. he flagged me down and gave me this flier

    he said that the city is planning to put a 10 foot fence down the median of cambridge street, preventing crossing from Lincoln to Harvard Ave, blocking off Linden and Highgate streets. He also said that they plan to put in shitty ass bike lanes that go up on the sidewalk. I am envisioning bike lanes similar to that of the one at the end of Western by Soldiers Field road, that is stupid and dangerous and I think I've told you guys how much I hate it 1000 times. There's a meeting next Tuesday the 19th at Jackson Mann. If you live in, work in or travel through this area it is going to make it even more of a pain in the ass than it already is. Go tell them that this is a stupid idea!!

    I went last night. I thought it was a good meeting. The main thing the community wanted to emphasize was safety for bikes and peds through better lighting and lowering the speed limit.
    Some people were talking about having a physical buffer for the bike lane.YO NOT EVERYBODY GOES TO EAR SCHOOL OK

    Andy shoulda been there, it was very "fuck cars". The road currently has 3 lanes, the design removed 1, and then someone asked "Do there really need to be TWO lanes?". And everyone was like "yeah!"i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    Yeah, I saw you but I guess you didn't see me. I was over by the frowning men on the left. But yeah, I was impressed at how smart and concise and persuasive almost everyone who spoke was.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    Hey, I just sent an email to Trader Joes (totally sent it to the wrong department, farewell credibility! but I hope it will get there) about their bike parking in Coolidge Corner, and while I'm thinking about it, I hope others who shop there will send one too. They used to have a green wavy U-rack, and I asked them to add another one cause it was literally ALWAYS full, and they were very nice and complied...by adding one of those fence-style racks that only fits 26" wheels. I was reluctant to look my (lame) gift horse in the mouth, but last week they took away the green rack. So it's time. Help a sister out if you feel like it.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    Let's protest by bringing bikes inside the store and walking around with them, because there's no place to park."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    was it something that was a permanent fixture or did it have like, feet-y things? I've been noticing that those racks put in place of parking spaces have started to disappear. Because of winter time i guess?Must be awful, being so fluffy.
