Sean Roche goes so far as to declare the lanes, unveiled yesterday, reveal Boston as the new Portland - especially the lanes on Comm. Ave. from Charlesgate to the Public Garden:
... It's really tough to put into words how remarkable these bike improvements are and what a sea change it is to have Boston setting the standard for comprehensive bike accommodations. ...
Joe Ranft is also liking them:
... I especially like the lanes on Commonwealth Avenue that are not placed next to parked cars on the right side of the road, but on the left side, fairly well respected by drivers with no danger from opening car doors. ...
However, he adds:
... It's definitely progress, but you can still tell that bike lanes are only added where there is room, and not in place of parking spaces. ...
Mike Ball of Hyde Park, who keeps trying to get Mayor Menino to ride a bike with him to City Hall, reports on yesterday's formal dedication, which also included City Council President Mike Ross:
... His head's in the right place. He's the one who encouraged Menino to bike. He backed that up with a gift of a mountain bike ... and more encouragement. Ross was the catalyst, Menino has said repeatedly. ...
