I recently stumbled upon an article regarding how the City of Boston recently began allowing doctors at Boston Medical Center to prescribe a $5 year membership for the bicycle share program (Hubway) for their low income patients. This is really a brilliant idea. As all my readers know, I feel the bicycle can basically solve most of our world problems such as, pollution, mental and physical health and of course transportation!
This program will allow the low income patients to increase their health, lower blood pressure, lose weight and perhaps even have better transportation to work. A true win/win for the patient and the city of Boston I hope other cities take notice and implement this in their cities.

As spring is finally here (even though it is snowing in Chicago right now), I just want to once again warn everybody to be safe, and practice defensive riding. I have posted a great blog on bicycle safety last year and I have a link to it here. I urge all my readers to read it once again. As a bicycle injury lawyer, I know first hand how many of these terrible collisions can be avoided. Of course, they can’t all be avoided but the more educated and aware we are on the bike the less likely we will crash! Even more important, is educating the drivers of motor vehicles to keep an eye out for bikers. I have noticed that when I drive my car I always spot bikers before my passengers. This is because I am a biker and have a heightened awareness for them. WE NEED all drivers to feel this way. The penalties for striking a bicyclist must be substantially increased.…. Anyway, enjoy the spring weather and…
Ride. Be Safe. Have Fun.
