A Good Day for a Bike Ride!

Today is a little bit windy, but the sun is out & it looks to be a beautiful fall day. A perfect day to take a bike ride! If you happen to live in the Boston area & you do not have a bike of your own, you can take advantage of the Hubway Bike-Share Program. Taking inspiration from Paris's lead in 2007, as well as, the more recent Montreal’s Bixi Bike program, Boston has implemented its own bike friendly effort. With more than 140 kiosks & some 1500 bikes, it is easy to find a location, that is right for you. I happened to see the ones in the photo above, in the North End, last weekend. Boston has a number of wonderful bike paths & trails, so why not get started on a biking adventure. Many other cities, in both Europe & North America, have started similar programs. Check out the possibility of renting one of these bikes in your area.

No matter what you decide to do this weekend, I hope it is a wonderful one.


  1. Be careful, Sally! warm greetings from Paris and its bikes!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Sally. Been looking at your sketchbooks, love artists sketchbooks they are like visual thoughts :)

  3. Looks so fun! It is a great idea. Here in Japan biking has been loved too, though unfortunately I am not good at riding bikes....
    Take care,Sally please!!

  4. Hi Sally,
    My first visit to your blog. I came through Tomoko's blog.
    I used to cycle when young but its been long since I used it... They are great for health and also reduce pollution.
    Have a fabulous week ahead:)

  5. Hi, cycling in the Boston area sounds like a wonderful thought. One year ago since I were there, I aboslutely loved it! Weekend almost over here, and it was spent as temporary single mum to three girls, one with chicken pox and another petit one who's stopped sleeping all of a sudden. Main goal: try to stay in good mood when dad comes home...

  6. Thank you all for coming along with me. It is so nice to think that I can share my humble adventures with swig in Paris, Peter in Scotland, Tomoko in Japan, Arti in India, not to mention Arctic Mom. The world really is a small & wonderful place.

    Arctic Mom, I hope your little one's chicken pox are all better soon & that your family is whole again & sleeping soundly through the night!
