MassBike Spins to Deer Island
Sunday, July 24, 2011

9:00 am Adams Park in Roslindale Square
10:00 am Paul Revere Park, Charlestown
10:45 am: East Boston Greenway Blue Caboose

On this seventh annual ride to Boston’s Harbor Islands, we’ll bike a total of 30 miles from Charlestown, starting along the waterfront, then through Everett,and Chelsea to East Boston. We’ll follow the East Boston Greenway and streets to Revere, then go south along the Winthrop shore to the tip of Deer Island, where we’ll be in the middle of Boston Harbor. We’ll ride back through East Boston, stopping at Constitution Beach for lunch (there are lots of fast food places over the footbridge on Bennington St.) and optional swimming if it’s hot, then across Chelsea to the Mystic River and back to Charlestown.
Cosponsored by MassBike and the Boston Natural Areas Network. Helmets are
required, and some of the roads will be rugged.

People from the southwestern part of Boston can join the leader, Doug Mink,
at 9:00 am in Roslindale Square to ride a total of more like 45 miles.

JPBikes Sundae Roll

Written by Boston Biker on Jul 21

8:00 pmto10:00 pm

from the email, I love everything about this idea, check this out.

—————–

Sundae Roll – evening neighborhood cruise from JP Bikes (jpbikes.org)

Time: Sunday, July 24, 8-10pm

Location: The Monument, Centre Street and South Street, Jamaica Plain, MA

Meet your fellow bikin’ and cyclin’ neighbors for a weekly evening cruise around JP, taking advantage of the cool temps and quiet streets! Bring your mountain, commuter, cargo, tandem, tall, short, chopper, mixte, fixie, road, or cross bike. We don’t care, as long as it’s in good repair and you’ve got a front and rear light; slap a bell on for extra credit and fun.

We’re going to wander around the back streets of JP for a while, and then get ice cream at JP Licks! This is not a ‘critical mass’ or protest ride: we’ll follow the traffic rules (we stop for red lights and pedestrians in
crosswalks, for example.)

If it’s a success, we’ll do it again the next week, and the week after that…

Our goals:

-socialize and catch up by slowin’ down
-encourage the people in our lives to use their bikes more, if only for a
goofy ride (bring a friend, lover, neighbor, coworker, date, roommate…)
-meet your neighbors! You know, those people that live near you!
-make new friends (and more?)
-find people to ride with
-rant and rave about bikin’ and cyclin’ in the area

Little ones are welcome as long as they’re in seats, trailers, trail-a-longs, cargo bikes, etc. with you.

Please come helmeted, and we humbly suggest water and moolah for frozen concoctions. Cameras are good too!

Note on the starting time: we’re aiming for early enough that we won’t spoil bedtimes for those with early mornings, but not so early that we won’t interfere with dinner plans and whatnot. We can discuss this more
after the ride!
