Ride the Cycle Track at Huntington Ave Open Streets!

Join the Boston Cyclists Union at Circle The City On Sunday, July 14th 

Better Block Cycle Track

from 11am – 4pm, Circle The City will present the first of two Open Streets events this year. Open Streets on the Avenue of the Arts, presented with the Fenway Alliance, will feature car-free programming on Huntington Avenue between Belvidere Street and Brigham Circle. The outbound side of Huntington Avenue  will be closed to buses and cars to allow for more than 50 free activities for thousands of residents and visitors to walk, bike, roll, dance and play together in the streets of Boston.

Come ride your bike and check out the Boston Cyclists Union at the  corner of Huntington Ave and Gainsborough. We will be using temporary barriers including planters and seated areas to create a segregated bicycle track to enjoy and relax.

Other activities along the route include  live music including Salsa Y Control, an REI Climbing wall, and a dedicated Kid’s Zone. From OMBE Yoga to Zumba, dance and fitness classes will be offered through out the day for all ages along the route. Remember to keep an eye out for neighborhood and sculpture tours near the Christian Science Center Plaza and Brigham Circle, Art Making at the MFA and Food Trucks for a tasty bite.

    So, there is no actual cycle track that has been built? That would be a great stretch for one since the city made the sidewalk massive, and did away with much of the on-street parking.

    A few friends an I attended the event and it was quite fun, if a little hot.

    We ran into Boston mayoral candidate Bill Walzack who was walking up and down the avenue, handling pamphlets and having friendly chats with people.

    We asked him about his plans regarding biking for Boston. He said that he was a regular bike commuter himself, strongly committed to promoting biking in Boston, and was the only candidate who biked to some of the recent mayoral debates/forums. We were was quite impressed.

    Now seems like a great time to quiz our mayoral candidates on their biking IQ and commitment to biking in the city!
