Here’s club’s charter and other useful information.
All regular trips will depart from Boston’s North End. There are plenty of bike trails that start right in the city and connect with other trails outside of the city. Let’s get on our bikes and start riding and avoid the hassle of driving to the bike trail.
We will have at least one weekly re-occurring trip scheduled starting in May. Summer is short. Let’s try to ride our bicycles at least once a week! You don’t have to commit to the weekly schedule but reoccurring event will be there to keep up the riding spirit.
We prefer paved bike trails to roads and will be picking safe routes with minimal on the road riding.
We will have special events in summer and will explore trails outside of the city including Cape Cod Rail Trail, and others
