Sun March 18, 2012 – Neponset Greenway End of Winter Ride. 10:00 am Castle Island We’ll ride along the Harbor south to the Neponset River, up it to the Blue Hills, and back again. We’ll look at pathways which are new since our last ride and discuss what is happening next along the Neponset Trail. People who live closer to Hyde Park than to South Boston are welcome to split off if they need the time, though much of the ride back will be on a different route than the ride down.
