Recently in Senator Brownsberger’s office, the issue of bike safety has been raised. We thought it may be a good idea to compile resources for cyclists in the district. There are 3 categories of items: Bike Laws, what to do if you are in an accident, and maps and routes around the Greater Boston Area.
Bike Law in Massachusetts
MassBike has a succinct summary of laws and rights as a cyclist, which can be found here: http://massbike.org/resourcesnew/bike-law/
If You Are in An Accident
MassBike offers a step by step guide for what to do if you are involved in an accident, which can be found here: http://massbike.org/resourcesnew/what-to-do-if-you-crash/
A map of Greater Boston Bikways can be found here: http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/articles/2012/07/08/connecting_dots_for_cyclists/
Another great set of maps can be located here: http://www.cityofboston.gov/Images_Documents/bike%20map_tcm3-14074.pdf
