As they say, if you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes – and this spring has proven the wisdom of that sentiment. The rain has come, and gone, and come back, and for this week it has decided to loom heavy. As a result, it is very important to check the Bay State Bike Week Calendar to ensure that the event you want to attend hasn’t been postponed or canceled. A few events, like the Boston-area Ride of Silence on Wednesday and the Cape Cod Cycling Club/MassBike Ride in Hyannis on Thursday, have been postponed, and the MassBike Pump & Lube stations on Monday and Tuesday have already been canceled (it’s not very effective to lube a dripping wet chain). We don’t want you to be disappointed, so please stay tuned.
Indoor Bike Fun! However, there are several excellent events going on regardless of the rain! These include many indoor happenings, such as Bike Night at The Peoples Pint (Tuesday @ 5 pm at The Peoples Pint, 24 Federal St, Greenfield); Ciclismo Classico 2nd Annual Bike Film Festival (Wednesday @ 7 pm at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford Street, Arlington); or the MassRIDES Travel Options Workshop (Thursday @ 12 pm at 10 Park Plaza, Conference Room 3, Boston) – just to name a few.
Free Stuff! Missed us at a MassBike Morning Giveaway (or it was rained out)? Bike to the MassBike office, 10am-4pm the rest of this week for your free Bay State Bike Week T-Shirts and Ankle Straps!
