Ride FAQ


We all know living in Cambridge is sweet. But did you know we have a sweet history?

Fig Newtons were created in Cambridge and named after our neighboring town. The NECCO building on Mass Ave was for a time the largest candy factory in the world. Fifteen million Junior Mints are still being made each day on Main Street, perfuming Central Square with the delightful scent of chocolate.

There’s a lot that’s sweet about our city but let’s not forget the savory either. It was Zachariah B. Porter’s restaurant in North Cambridge that gave us both Porter Square and the Porterhouse steak. Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” which raised the culinary standards of the nation, was published while she lived on Irving Street.

Please join us for a gorgeous springtime ride, at an easy pace, on mostly level terrain. No rain date: heavy rain cancels. Rain announcements will be posted here on the morning of the ride. Like all our tours, this ride is free of charge.

    Please post info about this on the Screen-Free (Play Full) Cambridge facebook page even though it occurs after the actual week. Getting more kids outside and cycling is part of the whole shebang. If you have flyers we can hand out at SFPF events, all the better…just email me for more info.
