No Bikes!!

By on

One of the best things about Castle Island in South Boston where Sullivan's is located is that there is a no bike riding allowed rule. Beautiful. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have a problem with bikers at the Island, but after reading the whiney, obnoxious posts on UHub by all the weird, self entitled bike Nazis, I support the rule 100%. Let them peddle their pampered little hearts out over in Cambridge.

What?

Wait- so bikes have never bothered you in any way, but just because of a few posters on a news blog, you want them banned?

Need an ice pack for your butthurt, Francis?

Well at least it was enlightening to find out about the Ubolt justice that I never knew about. One reason now that I feel the bicycles should be registered and insured , never thought of it before. And also , when walking i will now be prepared with my blackthorne at ready, or at least a nonchalant fore arm shiver if I am encroached upon . Knowledge is power .

Interesting

Maybe we should restrict cars to the freeways only, then?

Let them drive their wasteful and slothful hearts out of commission making pollution on the southeast expressway! Yeah!

There's the rule, and then there's reality

I know the paths around Castle Island have signs prohibiting bikes but I have seen lots of people on bikes, especially in the summer. I never saw a ranger enforcing the rule either.

Not truly enforced

By on

(disclaimer, I don't got to Castle Island as much as I did a few years ago)

I've seen bicycles on the Island. I don't quite see why they should be banned on the path to the Sugar Bowl (the Marine Park side, not so much the sluiceway side), but the paths on the Island are way too narrow for cycling. Being a roller skater, I think my means of exercise might be too much for the Island, so bikers (and skaters) should use courtesy.

Of course, the roads are wide enough to accommodate bicycles and cars this time of year, so I encourage all to visit Sullivan's.

Myself, I gotta work, so I'll be staring out the window dreaming of Sullivan's. And making a resolution to visit (by car, not bike) more often this year.

Citywide tour

Didn't one of the "Tour de Boston" routes go to Castle Island?

Not a biker, but were I, I hopefully would know from experience.

Me too

During the summer, it would be both frustrating and insane to be on a bike on the paths. No advantage over walking, really. Way too many people.

Sullivan's is good if you have the palette of a 5 year old.

They should tear it down and build a nice high end bistro.

They did knock the place down and completely rebuilt it significantly larger about 15-20 years ago. The original location was slightly to the left of the front of the current one.

Sullys opening = Spring! Screw the snow! Was at Castle Island last weekend, bit chilly but beautiful.

I'll be there for fries and an invigorating brisk walk around the fort. Some people actually say hello when you walk by them -- quite friendly. Good spot for bird watching too: usually see eiders and mergansers during the winter months.
