The United States is in the grips of an opioid epidemic. Drugs take a toll on nearly every facet of society. In 2017, 70,237 people died from drug overdoses. That number has more than quadrupled since 1999. The New England and Middle Atlantic states are some of the hardest hit, and account for many of the opioid fatalities.

As it gets nicer outside, more people take to the streets to enjoy the sunshine with family and friends, and that means an increase of bicyclists on the streets. Bicycling.com ranked Boston as one of the best cities for bicyclists in the country, and people are ready to take full advantage of what we have to offer.
