The trail is 8.5 miles from Arlington center to Bedford and we ride at a moderate pace.This event auto-repeats monthly and may be leaderless. You may rsvp 10 days in advance.

Wear a helmet, bring water and sunscreen, watch out for children on the trail, and have a good time!


The Minuteman Bikeway passes through the historic area where the American Revolution began in April 1775.

Today, the Minuteman Bikeway is one of the most popular and successful rail-trails in the United States, enjoyed for both healthy recreation and transportation.

The bikeway has become a new type of “Main Street” where neighbors and strangers alike come together while riding, walking, or skating on the path.

In 2008, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy inducted the Minuteman Bikeway into the national Rail-Trail Hall of Fame.

    Too cool and drippy for me. Look forward to seeing you all next time.

    Hmmm...A handful of us rode thru monsoon-like downpours on Labor Day weekend, and got drenched, but it was a little bit warmer then. I think I will mirror Liz' status and keep an eye to the sky. This time I will wear sandals like another smart rider did on that aforementioned Labor day weekend. With socks and sneakers I swear each foot weighed an additional 10 lbs after that ride.

    It's cold and drippy right now, that's for sure. But the radar shows there's a chance it'll stop soon; and the weather says "passing showers." If it stops in the next 45 minutes I'm going to head onto the trail anyway (waterproof jacket in hand).

    Hey all, I'm going to cancel for today due to the rain. I'm bummed out as it rained last time around too and I was hoping to meet y'all finally! I'll be at the bike maintenance basics at the Cambridge library this Wednesday if any of you plan on it... otherwise, hope to see you next time.
