Biking in the Hub

I’ve decided to start cycling to work as the weather gets warmer here in Boston. I’m doing this as I sit for most of the day and getting exercise has been a huge problem for me.

I would love to know if anyone has any tips for cycling in Boston, especially through the center of the city. I’m big on safety and I would like to use bike lanes as much as possible.

With safety in mind, I’ve gotten the following for my bike.


I also have a helmet, another front and rear LED light, a pump, and a tire repair kit.

Do you have any tips or advice for me?
