Bikeyface Bike Week Picnic

Written by Boston Biker on May 16

This looks awesome, might even go myself!

 

Bikeyface Bikenic · May 20 · 12pm

Are you curious about biking? Or maybe you’re experienced and want to share? Come to the Bikenic!

What is a Bikenic? It’s a picnic where people share information and discuss biking to work. Bring a lunch, yourself, and your curiosity. No bike riding involved or bike required (you can take the subway or drive for all we care!)

This is not a workshop. This will be a group of people in the community curious about biking, or with tips to share. There is no agenda, set topic, or structure. The idea is that no single person can know everything about what you want to know about bike commuting, but perhaps a group of people do. It will be kind a community knowledge-sharing social event. Hopefully you’ll make new friends and find practical answers to your biking questions. All backgrounds, experience levels, and questions welcome and encouraged!

Details:

Date: Sunday, May 20, 12 noon

Location: Boston Common Frog Pond, Boston MA

Bring: A lunch, picnic blanket

Weather: Rain cancels
