MassBike is gearing up for the 2011 riding season by scheduling our Spins Series Rides. Last weekend the season began with the Last Day of Winter Neponset Trail Spins Series Ride, and continues on April 9 with the Good Riddance Winter, Hello Spring Ride. Join us for a ride to appreciate Boston’s spring scenery. Or check out below on how MassBike can help you with your own ride.
Saturday, April 09, 2011 – 11:00a-2:00p. Rain cancels, rain date: Sunday, April 10, 2011.
Say good riddance to the long and cold winter we’ve had in Massachusetts by joining MassBike to celebrate the (hopeful) arrival of spring! We will ride through Beacon Hill, Back Bay, the Fens, the Southwest Corridor, and the Arnold Arboretum to enjoy the spring air and budding greenery. The ride is about 7 miles, and paced for everyone to be able to enjoy the ride. Bring friends and family, all are invited. We will meet at the State House entrance (24 Beacon Street) at 11:00am.
If you do not wish to ride in, the State House is accessible by T from the Red Line’s Park Street stop and the #43 and #55 buses (check bus schedule for Saturdays @ mbta.com). When we reach the Arboretum, the Orange Line’s Forest Hill’s stop is easily accessible if you do not wish to ride home. The ride is scheduled for a Saturday, so bikes on the T are no problem.
Bring your helmet; they are required for all MassBike Spins rides.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to join us on the ride.
We look forward to a great riding season with all of last year’s favorites, like the Tour de Graves, and some new rides, like the Bastille Day Ride which will end at the Bastille Day street party outside of the French Cultural Center on Marlborough Street.
Interested in doing a ride in Massachusetts? Group rides are a fun way to introduce the joys of cycling to new cyclists and are a great way to strengthen the cycling community in Massachusetts.
MassBike can help by offering ride insurance to groups and individuals. You can find out more about making your ride a part of the MassBike Spins Series here.
