Do you like the green / health benefits of cycling, but are concerned about the safety of biking in your city? Would you like to see your city made more safe and convenient for cycling? If you care about bicycles and the urban landscape (and we hope most of you do!), then be sure to JOIN US today at 3:30pm est to talk to Boston Bike Czar Nicole Freedman. We’ll be discussing Boston’s new bike initiatives, including the new bike sharing program - which will put 3000 rentable cycles on the streets of Boston to enhance public wellbeing.

Nicole is the driving force behind Boston’s new bike love, and what will be the biggest bike-sharing system in the United States, so she definitely knows a thing or two about the topic at hand. She’s also a former Olympic cyclist and has played a pivotal role in making Boston a more bike-friendly place as the director of the city’s bicycling programs. We are SUPER EXCITED about this can’t-miss webinar with Nicole today, so please JOIN US, and take part in the conversation!

    I was interested in how much Boston is estimating annually for maintaining the bicycles. Does anyone know?

    NOTE: Editors I’ve submitted these questions in another post, but not sure if you will see them since the webinar is about to start soon, so I’ve reposted them here.

    1. Is Boston aware of any hurdles that the other countries/cities have experienced with their bike share programs? If so, how is Boston planning on overcoming those hurdles?

    2. I’ve read that Boston’s bicycling infrastructure isn’t up to bicyclist’s standards? If this is true, why is Boston coming out with a bike sharing program when they should be improving the bicycling infrastructure first?

    3. How is the bicycle helmet issue being handled?

    4. How are the liability issues being handled?

    5. Is the city expecting additional revenues to be generated by the program? Or will they break even?

    6. Have their been any objections to the program by local residents, business owners, city officials, etc.? If so, what are they?

    7. If a better bike sharing program was introduced in the future would Boston be interested in it? Or, are they already locked into Bixi’s system?
