MassBike held its 2nd Annual Summer Century & Family Fun Ride last Saturday, July 30th and it was a huge success! We had over 300 riders join us for a fun ride, beautiful weather, and good food. Riders took on routes from 12 to 100 miles which traversed the heart of early American history, from Paul Revere’s Ride through Lexington and Concord and to nearby battlefields. Longer rides visited the towns and villages that sent the first Minutemen.
With the success of the ride, the proceeds help make MassBike better advocates for bicyclists across Massachusetts. MassBike works through legislation, education, and infrastructure projects to get more people on bicycles and to make our roads and paths safer. Your support was important to making sure that bicyclists are protected in Massachusetts!
One reason our event was so successful was because of our fundraisers who went the extra mile to help us out! In addition, a big thanks goes out to all of our board members and volunteers who helped to organize the event and make sure that everything went smoothly on Saturday.
We also want to thank our fantastic sponsors who donated their products and services! Thanks goes out to Redbones BBQ, Ride Studio Cafe, Luna Bar, Food Should Taste Good, Jason & Fischer, and Mass Land Law, who helped provide support and fuel our riders throughout the day.
We’ll be reviewing this year’s rider feedback (which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org) and will begin our planning for next year’s ride. We’ll be posting photos as we get them. If you have any you’d like to share, please send them to email@example.com.
Thanks to all our riders for joining us!
