New bike lane on Beacon Street from Cleveland Circle around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir

Click the title of this post for a link to some video of the new bike lane around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. (Many thanks to the Newton Streets and Sidewalks Blog.) This has always been a pretty harrowing spot to ride a bike and it is a key entry point into Boston for bike riders coming from points west, so it is a welcome addition. This is a great step forward for Boston bicycle riders care of Nicole Freedman and Mayor Menino.

I think that the prominence of this bike lane will serve as a constant reminder to drivers of our presence, will increase the number of bicyclists and it will hopefully result in fewer bicycle accidents. Great stuff!
