Cyclists put the pedal to the metal at Roslindale's Bike Day

Adams Park became a paradise for cyclists last Saturday when riders from different neighborhoods and communities pedaled over to attend Roslindale Farmers’ Market’s Bike Day.
By 8:56 a.m., several cyclists were already waiting outside the Boston Cyclists Union’s stand before its tent was even set up. During the theme day, which took place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the group, a nonprofit biking organization based in Jamaica Plain, provided a variety of bike-related activities including free bike repair and tune-ups.
In addition, RozzieBikes, a Roslindale organization devoted to making the neighborhood a better place to bike, provided information, maps and guides on riding in Boston. Ferris Wheels Bike Shop from Jamaica Plain also attended the event.
“The turnout was huge,” said Pete Stidman, executive director of the union. He said the group fixed 46 bikes, talked to hundreds of people and got 20 new members.
Luis Sanchez, a union board member, teaches bike repair techniques and also shows owners how to repair bikes by themselves. He pointed out two common problems that most bikes face: Brake failure and improper inflation of tires or worn tires.
“It is important to have your bike checked often,” he said. According to Sanchez, owners just need basic tools like screwdrivers, Allen wrenches and an air pump to fix those problems.
Like the Boston Cyclist Union’s stand, the RozzieBikes stand was surrounded by enthusiasts. Deb Beatty Mel from Roslindale got a free map and guide from RozzieBikes.
She said she began biking more after she no longer needed to take her daughter to high school after she graduated. Since then she said she rides about four times a week to work in Roxbury Crossing unless there’s bad weather or she’s late.
“When I got this bike, the price of gas was just going up a few years ago. I figured out that if I saved six tanks of gas, I would pay for the bike,” said Mel.
Jonathan Celestin, 19, who is going to be a sophomore at the Wentworth Institute of Technology this fall, heard about the event at a farmers’ market in Mission Hill.
“It’s pretty good. It’s pretty friendly, a friendly atmosphere with nice people,” Celestin said about the service offered by the Boston Cyclist Union. Celestin began to ride a bike when he was 6 and rides 25 miles from Hyde Park to the Charles River and back every Sunday, which is his favorite route.
“I feel free while I am on my bike,” he said, “and it is faster than MBTA.”
This is the third year RozzieBikes has organized Bike Day at the farmers’ market. According to George Ulrich, one of the founders of RozzieBikes, the group is working with the Boston Cyclist Union to reach out to all the neighborhoods in Boston. Their goal is to have one voice that advocates for better cycling around the city.
“The condition of the streets in Boston ... they certainly do need work, but they are getting better,” said Ulrich.
“Biking gives you more independence to be able to go to the places that you cannot get to by the T. It is a great exercise and doesn’t harm our planet and keeps the emission down. So even though it is better to take a bus than to drive your own car, it is better to bike than to take a bus,” Ulrich said.

Guided cycle events cater for all abilities

A CYCLING campaign is urging people to get on their bikes and explore the area on two cycling wheels.

Plymouth City Council, Sky and British Cycling are leading Sky Ride Local – a series of free community bike rides.

The guided cycle events will run from July to September, with routes ranging from two and a half to 23 miles.

Tailored for cyclists of all ages and abilities, they will include pedals along the Plym Valley, from Devil's Point to Plymouth Hoe, and a spin on the moors.

Councillor Mark Coker, Cabinet member for transport, said: "Joining a group cycle ride is a great way of meeting other cyclists in the area as well as seeing the city and countryside sights.

"These rides allow people to pick and choose their own difficulty level – whether you're like me and haven't been on a bike for years, or you regularly cycle through dirt tracks I'm sure you will find something that will get the heart racing. What's more, these rides are free to attend."

The rides are split into four categories:

'Ride easy' for those looking for an easy, slow paced and traffic-free cycle.

'Ride steady': relaxed leisurely rides.

'Ride well' which are a bit more adventurous with some on-road cycling and some hills. These rides are for people aged 16 or over. Children aged 11 to 15 can attend if accompanied by an adult.

'Ride strong' are mainly on-road for cyclists looking for a challenge.

Ride Leaders will be on hand with support, even for those who have not been on a bike for a while.

The Sky Ride Local rides are part of a national campaign including free events, activities, information and support to help and inspire people to re-discover the fun of bike riding and get one million people cycling regularly by 2013.

Plymouth is a Sky Ride campaign partner.

The summer cycles follow on from the Sky Ride Plymouth event on May 13. The eight-kilometre guided family cycle started on The Hoe, took in the Barbican and the city centre as well as Stonehouse, Royal William Yard, Millbay and West Hoe.
