My Boston Bike Experience

My girlfriend and I were visiting from Florida in 1990 and wanted to tour the Emerald Necklace. Asking to rent bikes was a little bit of a foreign language but we found some 3 speeds and headed out. We took the shortest route on the transit map toward the closest of the parks. As we progressed the neighborhoods seemed a little grimmer but we kept riding, we starting getting shouts of hey are you lost and people standing in the streets! Soon a police officer pulled us over and asked us what we were doing, we told him, he told us we were lucky we made it as far as we did in that neighborhood and he gave us a police escort to safer territory. Your Boston cycling sounds so much better!!
