MPDC and Boston Bikes give 26 bikes to residents


On March 16, MPDC’s Health Equity & Wellness team partnered with Boston Bikes to give away 26 bikes to our residents. Boston Bikes hosted a great introduction to biking on the streets of Boston including how to make left turns safely, basic rules of the road, and riding in high traffic situations. They also provided a tutorial on how to care for the bikes, the different parts of the bikes, and the ABC’s of checking your bike before every ride. We were able to distribute a bike lock and a helmet to each person who received a bike. This was our fifth bike giveaway with Boston Bikes since 2015 and through this great partnership we have been able to distribute over 100 bikes to residents who live at our properties.
