Recapping The Summer Century & Family Fun Fest: We Had A Blast!

SC_quickrelease

A huge thank you goes out to all the supporters, volunteers and riders of our Summer Century & Family Fun Fest that was held on Saturday, July 27th! This brand-new edition of our classic summer cycling celebration brought together riders to experience some of the Commonwealth’s unique and challenging roads.

With great weather, a beautiful venue in Acton (NARA Park), incredible food from Redbones, and refreshing beer from Sam Adams, it was an overall wonderful day for cycling. We even received some great feedback from our riders!

The metric century route was amazing — good hills, fun down hills, beautiful roads. NARA park was a great venue — we enjoyed a post-ride swim. Overall, a really fantastic event.

I enjoyed everything about this event – the ride was beautiful and somewhat challenging; the event as a whole was very well planned and organized and administered; support provided was tremendous, and there was also much support among our group of riders. Thank you so much for a terrific day!

I like that we were taken on back roads so that there weren’t a lot of cars to be worried about and that it was mostly in the shade. The volunteers were amazing – very helpful and supportive and clearly available if anything was needed. It was an amazingly well organized event all in all.

I absolutely loved the route – it was a beautiful, fun and challenging ride. The rest-stop folks (I am assuming volunteers) were kind, helpful and supportive.

Nice people, great ride, beautiful scenery, super weather – the ingredients for a great day.

Thank you to all who attended and volunteered! All the proceeds from the event support MassBike’s programs that include bicycle safety education and trainings to build local capacity like Safe Routes to School and Bikeable Communities Programs. We are already looking forward to next year’s edition to provide an even better event. If you just can’t wait until next year’s Summer Century, check out our Berkshires to Boston Bicycle Tour coming up at the end of September!
