Have you taken a ride around town on a Hubway bike yet? Has there been a new bike lane installed in your neighborhood this past year? Have you heard about the Boston Bike Network Plan? If yes, then you know that 2011 has been a big year for bicycling in Boston.

For the fourth year in a row, LivableStreets Alliance will host the annual Boston Bike Update event. Nicole Freedman, Director of the Boston Bikes Program, will present her fourth report on past achievements, challenges, and future goals of the Mayor’s effort to create a “world class bicycling city.” Come hear details on the Hubway bike share, the Bike Network Plan, parking facilities, youth programs, festivals, and more.

Special guest, Mayor Menino, will speak about his “car is no longer king policy” for the city. Introduction will be by Steve Miller, LivableStreets Board Member.

Join us at this public forum on bicycle planning in Boston, and join us afterwards for a social hour.
