FrostBike 2003

There was a gathering of folks on bikes on March 1, 2003 who took part in a one-time-only celebration of bicycles in the streets of Cambridge. Organized by a some students from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, this was a short ride from the Cambridge Common to Cambridge City Hall where a proclamation was read by State Senator (and fashion plate) Jarrett Barrios, hot chocolate was had by all, and a piņata in the shape of an SUV was gleefully whacked by the kids. Overall, a good way to kick off the month of March.
