Check out the updated “Go By Bike!” brochure that has just been released for Bay State Bike Week 2011. MassDOT Planning, the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), and the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition (MassBike) all partnered to update this useful guide to bicycling in Massachusetts.
The “Go By Bike!” brochure provides a concise and easily understood summary of biking basics that can be used to help a range of ages and experience levels get an easy ride when they “Go By Bike!” Like Bay State Bike Week, “Go By Bike!” is another product of the MassBike – MassDOT partnership. This partnership reconstituted Bay State Bike Week as a truly statewide event and jointly promotes the Same Roads Same Rules initiative that promotes safe and cooperative sharing of the road among bikers, pedestrians, and motor vehicle drivers.
The document can be printed on demand in keeping with MassDOT’s GreenDOT sustainability policy.
