  • Bikes are allowed on route 16

    September 12th, 2012
    bikes
    A few weeks ago I noticed a sign on Route 16:

    no bikes on road

    This sign is not supported by the law. Specifically, MGL 85.11b says:
    Every person operating a bicycle upon a way, as defined in section one of chapter ninety, shall have the right to use all public ways in the commonwealth except limited access or express state highways where signs specifically prohibiting bicycles have been posted

    Yesterday MassDOT called me to say that Route 16 is not a "limited access or express state highway". I wrote to the Cambridge Bicycle Committee and they told me the signs belonged to the Department of Conservation and Recreation and that "both Cambridge and MassBike requested that the signs come down back in April". I've now written to the DCR; we'll see what they say.

    Update 2012-09-26: The DCR didn't get back to me, but the did take down the sign!

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
