Boston bicycle advocacy officials said they will study safety concerns plaguing cyclists as enthusiast demanded action after six riders were killed locally in the past year and a half, including a woman last weekend. At the annual “State of the Hub” address at the Boston Public Library on Boylston Street Tuesday, Nicole Freedman of the Boston Bikes program, said the city would look at “hot spots” where bicycle crashes most frequently occur. Freedman also said the city is implementing a pilot program to install guardrails on the undersides of public works trucks to help prevent cyclists from getting caught under the wheels, which is what killed five of the six cyclists, officials said.
