Bike advocates say that making bicycling more of a transportation option for Boston workers, could be the answer to many of the city's transportation issues.
But just a few years ago, Boston was named by one bike magazine as one of the least "bike-friendly" cities in the country.

We're talking about practical biking in Boston this Friday at 1 on Radio Boston. Tune in or comment here!
