Boston Bike Culture

Sometimes everyone’s wrong. The other day, I recognized myself as a Mass-hole, a person in Boston who drives/bikes/walks like a self-centered and semi-suicidal maniac, giving Massachusetts as a whole a bad name while simultaneously endangering everyone that happens to be around them.  It was a bit of a shock, to be honest, and I was immediately overwhelmed…
