Wonderful bike commute

The third and final Bike Friday of the summer this morning and the Newton bike convoy numbered over 35. (Lexington won the largest convoy contest with 51.) Each ride has seen more people join the trip from Newton City Hall to Boston City Hall. Boston Bike tsarina Nicole Freedman says that Bike Fridays may continue into the fall. Here's hoping.

Newton Bicycle/Pedestrian Task Force chairman George Kirby charted the Newton convoy and led the first two rides. No pictures for this ride because George couldn't ride (though he did stop by to send the riders off) and yours truly set the pace.

George missed a terrific ride. It's really wonderful to be part of the growing contingent of people riding to work.
