Advocacy Videos

Whether waiting together for a green light on Longwood Ave or passing each other at a bike cage in the evening as we hurry home, many of us witness each other on our bikes every day. We've created two videos that will help you get to know some of your Longwood Cyclist colleagues and neighbors while realizing shared concerns like bike access and safety. Share these videos with those who cycle and those who do not -- safe streets are safer for everyone!
