The routes for the 2012 Summer Century and Family Fun Ride have been set and can be found in full detail here. We are really looking forward to this event and hope to see you there!
Here is a little bit more information about the ride in case you are unfamiliar…
The Summer Century and Family Fun Ride take place Saturday July 28th at Lexington High School. We welcome riders of all levels to come out and enjoy a great day of riding, while supporting bike advocacy in Massachusetts.
You can choose from from 12, 21, 42, 63, and 100 mile rides. The routes will traverse the heart of early American history, from Paul Revere’s Ride through Lexington and Concord to nearby battlefields. Longer rides visit the towns and villages that sent the first Minutemen.
Plus, by joining in the MassBike Summer Century & Family Fun Ride, you’ll be helping to make bicycling better in Massachusetts. All proceeds go to support MassBike’s bicycling advocacy. MassBike works through legislation, education, and infrastructure projects to get more people on bicycles and to make our roads and paths safer. Your support is important to making sure that bicyclists are protected in Massachusetts.
Just like last year’s ride, all rides have rolling start times for the convenience and safety of riders. The start window for Century (100 miles) riders will be 7-8:30 A.M., Metric century (62 miles) riders 8-9:30 A.M. and 40 mile riders 9-10:30 A.M. These rides feature arrowed routes with rest stops and cue sheets. Family rides of 10 and 20 miles will start in guided groups from 10-11 A.M., although families are welcome to follow the routes on their own.
After the great day of riding, lunch will be provided by Redbones Barbecue. Preregister today and get a Summer Century t-shirt.
All types of bicyclists are encouraged to join us and support the fantastic work of MassBike. With your help, we can make bicycling better in the Bay State. Enjoy the ride! Find out more info about the ride here.
