      Heh. I think this is at least 6 times actual speed. I was biking very slowly on a Danish cargo bike fully loaded with groceries. I was technically violating the law by not coming to complete stops, but I was traveling at a speed where it would be ridiculous to do so as I had ample time to check for conflicting traffic.

    I love the traffic circles along bike routes. It reminds me of living in Vancouver where they have them in some of my favorite parts of the city.
    I wonder if those are volunteer gardens in the circles.

    You went right by a house my aunt owns. Her current tenant is a U student that loves that she can bike up Charles towards campus, or take the Green Line now.

        I’m not sure if they are active yet or not. I think I noticed the signs were installed since I shot this video, but haven’t noticed the beacons.

    I checked them out yesterday. The beacons are there with passive detection, but I found it hard to activate them, and I saw a few cyclists pass by without triggering them. Cars were also very poor at yielding for the crosswalk here, even with good visibility and (sometimes) some very bright flashing lights.
