In Cambridge and across the nation, Friday is monthly Walk/Ride Day. Cambridge and Somerville are both part of a larger effort to encourage people to leave their cars at home in favor of bikes, buses, subways and feet.
The benefits of this effort are obvious – more exercise, less pollution.
And — if you’ve ever sat in rush hour traffic on Third Street, Alewife Brook Parkway, Mass Ave, Harvard Street or in Union Square– fewer headaches. It can take forever to get from one end of Cambridge to another.
