It may not be life changing, but the monthly email for the city is kind of reassuring. You can sign up here.
I *did* learn that the city is putting up some covered bike racks. I like them simply because they're very conspicuous. But I've never understand why people are so worried about bikes getting wet. They don't melt. I've had a bike parked outside since I found her in Inman Square (on the line between Cambridge and Somerville, Mass) maybe 10 years and fixed her up. She rides just fine.
Expect few updates for the next month as I travel around the world. But I'm sure I'll come back with some pictures and maybe an update about biking in that friggin' perfect city, Portland, Oregon.
