Called the “Red Cup Project,” the Newton group’s efforts were part of a larger demonstration in honor of Dave Salovesh, a cycling activist who was killed recently while riding his bike in Washington, D.C. Cyclists from around the area took part in Friday’s protest, placing cups along busy streets in Boston, Cambridge, and Newton to visually call for better bike infrastructure and connectivity around the region.
