Got this in the mail today, it costs 10 smackers, but looks like a good time.

Pianos to Pints

A Bike Tour of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain

Saturday, September 13th, 10am-12pm, $10. On September 13, Discover Roxbury
will launch its fall tour series with a bike tour along the Southwest
Corridor Park that will examine the hidden industrial history of Roxbury
and Jamaica Plain. Participants will see how Boston’s once-thriving
breweries and factories have found new lives and learn how community
protest stopped I-95 from being built through both neighborhoods. The tour
begins at the Piano Factory and travels along the route of the Orange Line
to Roxbury Crossing, through the heart of the former brewery district, and
ends at the former Sturtevant Factory in Jamaica Plain.

The tour is 2.5 miles along mostly flat ground. Beginners are welcome. The
tour is weather permitting and is limited to 20 participants. All
participants must bring and wear a bike helmet. The event is co-sponsored
by the Jamaica Plain Historical Society.

Tickets for the tour can be purchased on the Discover Roxbury website at
www.discoverroxbury.org. Riders will meet in front of the Piano Factory at
791 Tremont St at 10am.

Discover Roxbury is a non-profit organization based in Eliot Square,
Roxbury. The organization is currently celebrating its 5th year of
promoting cultural tourism and the economic revitalization of Roxbury. We
offer a regular series of tours and events highlighting the arts, culture,
and historic assets of Roxbury, from the colonial period to the present
day.

    Fun, but 2.5 miles isn’t much of a ride…
