Mission Statement

Boston Bikes is part of Boston’s vision for a vibrant and healthy city that benefits all its citizens. It seeks to make Boston a world-class bicycling city by creating safe and inviting conditions for all residents and visitors. Boston Bikes focuses on improvements in all six universal bike planning areas: Engineering, Enforcement, Education, Encouragement, Equity, and Evaluation.

Description

Mayor Menino established Boston Bikes in the Fall of 2007 by hiring Nicole Freedman, a transportation planner and former Olympic cyclist. At the time, Boston had only 60 yards of bike lanes and was frequently cited as the worst city for bicycling in the country. In the years since, Boston has transformed into one of the best cities for cycling, earning Silver-level designation as a bicycle friendly community from the League of American Bicyclists. From bike lanes to community programs to bike share, Boston Bikes continues to look toward a better cycling future for this city.
