Charles River Wheelmen: New Years Day Ride

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 29

From the email, looks fun:

 

On New Year’s Day morning starting at 11:00 from Park Street Station on Boston Common, Charles River Wheelmen run a nice, leisure, first day of the year 20 mile ride though some of Boston’s neighborhoods.  CRW has been running rides for many years and during that time, rain, snow or shine, from 6 to 250 riders show up.

Cranks Giving!

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 20

From the F-book:

————–

Saturday, November 22 at 1:00pm in EST
Copley Square
Copley Sq, Boston, Massachusetts 02116

First annual Cranksgiving Boston bike ride! Bring a bike, a bag, and a lock. This event is FREE but you’ll need about $15 to buy food to donate to The Greater Boston Food Bank and the Somerville Homeless Coalition.

Part scavenger hunt, part food drive, and part bike ride. As a grass roots event, Cranksgiving allows the Boston cycling community to give back to the neighborhoods we ride in and the city we love.

Navigate the streets of the Greater Boston area and the aisles of grocery stores searching for specific food items. Once you’ve found them and made your way through the checkout lines to the finish line, all of your food will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank and the Somerville Homeless Coalition.

Registration begins at 1pm in Copley Square in front of Trinity Church. The ride begins at 2pm. The afterparty will be held at Aeronaut Brewing Company in Somerville. It’s gonna be awesome!

Interested in becoming a sponsor or volunteering? Please email us at [email protected] for more details!
