Saugus and Malden urban but surprisingly bike-friendly ride (18 mi)

18 Mile suburban-style biking through an urban area. This loop is a good ride to know for those living in these cities who want to know quick workout rides. It's hard to find good biking route loops in this urban area.

The ride goes through Saugus, Revere, Malden, Melrose, and Wakefield. It includes mostly bike-friendly streets with wide, marked shoulders. Other roads are reasonably bike-friendly with enough room not to battle with traffic. Optionally for those with hybrid and mountain bikes, it can also include the gravel bike paths of the Northern Strand Community Trail in Saugus and in Malden, which are separate paths right now.

The completely on-road route's map, cue sheet, and GPS data can be viewed at http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2621801.

The route with 5 miles of of the Northern Strand Community Trail is http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2916968.

    I was 5 minutes late, but nobody showed up for the ride! I did my own longer ride by myself. If I do it again, I'll make it T-accessible for those cyclists who have a hard time getting to the suburban rides.

    I'm busy with my other main sport (rock climbing) lately but will schedule this as soon as I have a morning free on a Saturday or Sunday!
