Boston has long been known as a very walkable city. Its small, mostly flat and many people walk to work each day here. However, Boston’s reputation for aggressive drivers, cramped roads, lack of access to bikes as well as bike lanes probably never made you think of the city as a bike-friendly place, but that has changed.
The city’s community bike system, the Hubway, which started last year, has exceeded expectations. Many of the city’s rotaries are gone and bike lanes have popped up nearly everywhere you look.
WalkScore recently ranked Boston as the 4th most bikeable city in the US. According to the site, scoring is based on bike infrastructure (lanes and trails), hills, destinations and road connectivity, and the number of bike commuters.
