A rally and bicycle ride celebrating the installation of protected bike and bus lanes on Massachusetts Avenue in North Cambridge is scheduled for noon Saturday at the Linear Park at Cedar Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Organized by members of the Cambridge Bicycle Safety advocacy group, the rally is expected to feature speakers, bicycle decorations and a short guided ride on the north- and southbound protected bicycle lanes.

What the group called “long-awaited protected bicycle lanes” on Massachusetts Avenue between Dudley Street and the Cambridge-Arlington line were installed starting Nov. 8 under the city’s Cycling Safety Ordinance, originally passed by the City Council in 2019. The 2015 Cambridge Bicycle Plan slated this section of Massachusetts Avenue for protected bike lanes.
