World Domination, part six: Boston

OPEN Bicycle broke the news in a recent blog post...

"The New Haven Scorchers have built a solid reputation in the cycling community over the past few years. Over the past few months, the streets of Boston have seen a lot of these guys - now expect to see even more as they have officially established a Boston Scorchers chapter. The decision was made during the events of Pony Up a few weeks back, with the appointment of the first two members."

Boston's got quite a scene going, so it's only natural to extend our reach into their City. We've mentioned OPEN Bicycle enough, but check out DJ Brek One Supreme, DoYouKnowClarence?, Justin Keena Photography, and Boston Fixed (forums) for just a sampling of what they've got going on.
Besides being a rad group of bicycle debaucherists (yes, it is a word), they bring a lot to the table...

they got shops

they got frame builders

they got an mp3 blog

They're running their own Boldsprints regularly, as well as throwing some insane races in a city not known for it's, um, cyclability.

I won't bore you with the gritty details of the ordination ceremony involving the Secret Order of Pierre Lallement, men in cloaks, a windowless room, or the "sword of truth".

Welcome, Boston!

Next up? Scorchers London.
