Calorie Neutral Bike Ride: 35 - 40 miles for Ice Cream

If you put enough miles on your bike during a ride, you deserve ice cream!

Starting on the Minuteman Bikeway in Arlington Center, we will exit in Lexington Center then take a scenic ride through Concord, Carlisle and Bedford. There are 3 different ice cream places in Carlisle/Bedford (Kimball Farm, Great Brook Farm and Bedford Farm - notice a theme? But there's no apple or peach picking at any of these "farms"). As a group, we will vote on the destination (all are great!), and we will cycle 35 - 40 miles in total, keeping an 11 - 13 mph pace. Considering we will be in the western suburbs, this is a relatively flat ride with no major hill climbs.

There will be an opportunity to buy lunch or you can bring it with you but don't forget to bring money and your appetite for ice cream! Remember, with all this riding, this is a truly calorie-neutral ride!

Let's meet at 10:30am for a 10:45am start. The weather is predicted to be in the early 70's, which is perfect for both ice cream eating and cycling.

Because we will be cycling mostly on roads, there is a limit of 20 for this ride.

    I'd vote for Kimball's if I were attending, but I'm out of town this weekend. Enjoy the ride and the ice cream!!
