Jingle Ride 2015!

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 09

From the email, this looks pretty fun!unnamed

——-

On Sunday, December 13th, join the 19th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride.  This leisurely and festive singing bike parade goes from Arlington to Boston and back.  The 22-mile bicycle ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we stop and sing carols at local landmarks, and just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit.

There will be free hot mulled cider and freshly-brewed coffee and pastries thanks to our starting-point hosts at the Kickstand Café.  We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association!

It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride!

Bay State Bike Week 2015!

Written by Boston Biker on May 10

For most of us, every week is bike week, but it is rather nice that they make a special week just for us!  Hit the website below for a list of events, as well as where you can get all the free bike breakfasts!

From The website:

Bay State Bike Week: May 9th – 17th

Every May Massachusetts residents come together to celebrate human-powered, two-wheeled transportation. From Cape Cod to the Berkshires participants organize events like film screenings, bike breakfasts, festivals and more to encourage new riders and raise awareness about bicycle transportation.

It is fitting that Massachusetts is the only state in the nation with a truly statewide bike week, given our long history of biking. From Worcester’s bike racing champion Major Taylor to the world-famous Springfield Bicycle Club Tournament, the love of biking has deep roots.

What’s New for 2015?

Win Raffle Prizes! – This year, we’re adding some exciting options for our event participants and event organizers. Every day, Bay State Bike Week participants will have the option to log their bicycling trip in NuRide – the nation’s largest ridematching and incentive program for individuals who take green trips- and be entered to win a daily raffle prize. Whether you’re starting your own event or joining an existing one, let’s PUMP up those events, log your bike trips in NuRide, and make this the biggest Bay State Bike week ever!

How Do I Get Started? 

Plan An Event – We hope that you’ll plan a bike event in your community during Bay State Bike Week.  There are a lot of resources on how to do it. Once you have the details down, be sure to register your event.

Register Your Event – Click on the link to register your event. Be sure to provide as much information as you can for those who are looking to participate in Bay State Bike Week events in their community.

  • This year we want to stress the importance of bicycle safety. By completing the materials request form you can receive:
        • Bike Lights
        • Reflective Ankle Bands
        • Reflective Stickers
        • Bike Bells

Materials can be ordered by clicking here once you have submitted an event. We always do our best to fill a request, but please keep in mind that we have a limited quantity of materials that need to be distributed statewide.

Join An Event – Not ready to start your own event? That’s ok! Join an existing event in your community. Check out the calendar to find one close to you.

Share the Logo – In an effort to keep the message going, we ask that you share our logo on your promotional items, website, and printed materials.
