Is a bad bike lane better than no bike lane?

This, I decided, would be the summer I rode more to work. The shortest route between our house (Ashland) and my office (Natick) is 6 miles, almost entirely on Route 135 with less than 200 feet of elevation.

VW features the Bike Guy’s family

Since I started driving, I have owned eight Volkswagens (including a 1997 Trek-edition Jetta, as well as our current vehicles), so it was no surprise that I’d stop to say hello to the VW folks at the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross Championships – and grab a couple of awesome “I’m here for the waffles” shirts.
