Dozens of riders on bikes and filth bikes introduced site visitors on the Leverett Connector close to TD Backyard to a standstill Saturday afternoon.

A Massachusetts State Police spokesperson mentioned troopers acquired a number of calls round 3:30 p.m. reporting that roughly 40 riders had stopped on the Leverett Connector Bridge, which connects Leverett Circle to I-93 and the Zakim Bridge and to Route 1 north in Boston.

 “The stopped bikes have been blocking each lanes whereas some riders did donuts,” MSP spokesperson David Procopio mentioned in an electronic mail.

Video obtained by WBZ reveals some riders doing donuts or burnouts on the bridge as site visitors backs up behind them. Finally, the riders start to roll out because the clip ends. 

One other video launched by the Massachusetts Division of Transportation reveals a number of riders popping wheelies as they pace away.

State police mentioned a trooper responded to the scene, however the riders had already left by then.

An unnamed rider within the biker group instructed NBC10 Boston that Saturday’s incident was a “stunt scene” meant to exhibit the necessity for native tons to trip in.

“Mainly they’re simply saying that the entire tons that they trip are getting shut down by cops,” the person instructed the information station. “They usually have nowhere to trip, and all of the cops simply assume that they only need filth bike trails, filth trails. Nobody desires that. They need stunt tons, pavement. … Cops received’t allow us to trip the stunt tons so we simply take it to the streets.”
