Dear All,

It has been brought to our attention this morning that BBR’s Winterize Your Ride article was largely exactly the same as Jeff Guerrero’s Winter Survival Guide published in Urban Velo Magazine, Issue #4.

We at BBR were unaware of this until this morning, and the article was written by a volunteer.

Urban Velo, the publication and the website www.urbanvelo.org, is a wonderful publication, and I hold very high regard for its contributors, editor Brad Quartuccio, and publisher Jeff Guerrero, who is also the author of Winter Survival Guide.

I offer a deep apology for this oversight as editor. I hope that BBR and Urban Velo can move on from this rather shocking issue as colleagues. I admire and respect UrbanVelo, and thank its dedicated creators for their work.

Thank you for understanding,

Jasmine Laietmark, editor of Boston Bicycle Reflector


Be sure to check out this great bike event coming up in a few weeks. The Redbones Bike Party

is a good place to feel like you are part of the cycling community in Boston/Cambridge/Sommerville. Did I mention there is going to be an awesome raffle and as always great food and drink from Redbones? Party proceeds go to NEMBA and MassBike , our off-road and on-road cycling advocacy organizations here in Massachusetts.

Hopefully we’ll see you there!
