Biking Makes Life Better
From the desk of Dr. Erik S. Vose... I know that summer is still a few weeks away, but don’t you think it’s been nice here in Boston lately? Sure, the weather has been just about perfect, but I have also been noticing that the traffic has improved, more people on the streets are smiling and even the air seems a bit fresher. I have even noticed the cab drivers aren’t honking at other cars nearly as much.
Or, maybe it’s just that my outlook has changed.
Ever since I started riding my bike to work, life has been grand. I get some exercise while I take care of my commute in a shorter amount of time and with a very low level of stress. I am reducing my “carbon foot print” and saving a bunch of money on “T” fare. But the best part is: I feel great. Not only do I have more energy during the day, but when I go out on a bike ride on the weekends with friends, I am a stronger rider.
I am not alone as a bicycle commuter here in the city. There has been an initiative in Boston to make the city easier to navigate by bicycle. With the addition of more bike lanes and a focus on education, great strides are being made to allow those of us who are a little timid on a bike to pedal around town a bit more comfortable and safe.
