Afterwork paddle (Charles River)

{{{ Weather-permitting!!! }}}

First day back at work after a long weekend. If anyone would like to join me, I'm certain to be paddling around after I get out of work this day. I'd be willing to wait until 6pm if folks are coming from work and need more time to arrive and get going.

Location is right in Kendall Square, and there's a kayak rental outfit located right there. Bring your own boat down, or go ahead and rent one.

Probably will make our way around the Charles River Basin, maybe up river as far as Harvard. Lots of nice spots around here, including the Esplande, Museum of Science, Lechmere, and North Point.

Please note, rentals will need to be back to the dock by 7:00pm, otherwise late fees will ensue. Those with their own boats are free to paddle a little longer if desired.

    My kayak that I'm using is bright orange on top, white on the bottom. I'll be waiting at the entrance to the dock ramp

    Nate - that's a great idea and Tuesdays at that time almost always work for me. Hopefully the group / you will go out again and I can join in. I've always wanted to paddle in that area. Till then have fun.

      Right on .. I'll probably do this most weeks. It's a hard time of year for me, time-wise. But I wanna get out as much as I can before I need to start wearing a wet suit.

    This event is completely open-level ... beginners welcome.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
