In an area that is so dense and traffic-ridden, it makes sense that many Bostonians are opting to commute by bike. In recent years, towns in the Greater Boston area have been making efforts to redesign their streets to be wider and safer for cyclists to ride on. Although altering streets can be a long and arduous process, Boston has also seen the implementation of pop-up protected bike lanes, which have proven to be effective for safer riding all around the region.
