Our Green Talks series of interviews with green thought-leaders has been a smash success so far – garnering hundreds of registrants and viewers from all over the globe, and we’re super excited about the next one, which is happening TOMORROW at 3:30pm est! with Boston’s Bike “Czar” Nicole Freedman. We’re beyond thrilled to announce this interview with Nicole, as she is the driving force behind the first citywide bike-sharing system in the United States! Nicole is 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.

Boston’s new bike sharing system is set to debut this spring and will provide 1,000 to 3,000 bicycles for public use throughout the city, and we’ll be chatting with Nicole about her hopes for this exciting new project and the challenges she’s faced. We’re also going to try to convince her to move to New York City and launch a similar program here! Bostonians, New Yorkers and anyone who cares about greening your city and improving the cycling landscape, this is going to be a CAN’T MISS DISCUSSION with a fascinating visionary, so join us for our latest webcast in our Green Talks series this Thursday at 3:30 pm EST!

    Can’t wait to find out how she pulled off the bike sharing program in Boston. I would love to see something like this come to life in other cities. Especially my own – New York!

    Dear Nicole, Thank you for yourb efforts on behalf of bike commuters. I commute daily from Davis Square to Boston Financial District and back. As there are no direct bike routes that are safe fror bicycling on this route, I use the I-93 fire access and Boston Sand and Gravel Haul Road under I -93 between the Charles River and Sullivan Square, although it is posted no trespassing by BSG. Until Rutherford Avenue is made safer for cycling, is it possible to get the City’s support in accommodating bike traffic , at least during hours after BSG business hours? Thank you.
