The West Roxbury Bicycle Committee formed in February 2019 to organize bicyclists and advocate for safer bicycle infrastructure in West Roxbury. Our priority focus areas are the Centre Street business district and the parkways (especially the parkway section of Centre Street between the Arborway and Weld Street). These streets all need protected bike lanes, because they are all much too dangerous for riders.
As of summer 2019, we are currently in a major campaign to promote BTD’s proposal for a road diet in the Centre Street business district. This proposal includes a protected bike lane. It would convert Centre Street from one of the worst streets in the city for bicyclists to a people-centered space with comfortable accommodations for people traveling in all modes and allow people to safely ride, walk, drive and cross the street.
We are always seeking new members of the West Roxbury Bicycle Committee–please connect with us and get involved!
