Mayor Wu, Biker Convoy Navigate Orange Line Shutdown

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Wednesday morning at the Forest Hills Orange Line MBTA station today, Mayor Michelle Wu joined a group of cyclists setting off.

Members of the Boston Bicyclist Union say they're trying to influence some new members, while the Orange Line forces commuters to seek other options.

"We're trying to push the city for more bike lanes," said Patrick Snyder, a cyclist union member from West Roxbury. "Especially with the climate crisis."

The bikers have been holding what they call convoys— groups of riders who get together every morning to make things easier for all of them.

"So they can go to work in a fast and free and low-stress way," said Lucia, also from West Roxbury.

About two dozen bikers set off in Jamaica Plain Wednesday morning. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu briefly waved to reporters before setting off on her ten-speed.
