What we're about

Thanks for being a part of our Meetup group, and AMC Boston 20s and 30s. For those of you who are new, this email is to give some basic information about how you can get more involved with us and get on even more trips (our other websites have more trip postings than you’ll find here on Meetup!)

AMC Boston 20's and 30's (https://ym.amcboston.org/) is a group of the Appalachian Mountain Club (https://www.outdoors.org/) (AMC), dedicated to encouraging people in their 20s and 30s to get involved in the AMC and enjoy the outdoors.

With many volunteer leaders and co-leaders, we offer a variety of activities and events (both online and in-person). You may find us leading day hikes, backpacking, social events, local walks, trail maintenance, conservation work, kayaking, mountain biking, bicycling, skiing, camping, ice skating, and other activities. We sponsor trips throughout the year, most of which involve exploring different regions of New England. Check out some photos (https://www.meetup.com/AMC-Boston-Young-Members/photos/31347892/) of our activities here!

20s and 30s Charles River Bike Ride

Needs a location

You have to register here https://regi.amcboston.org/event/2983

Join us for a scenic bike ride along the Charles River! Our route will offer sweeping riverfront and skyline views over the course of about 20 miles. We will ride through a mix of terrains over mostly flat, multi use paved pathways, gravel paths, sidewalks, closed roads and a few short sections of active roads with bike lanes. We will bike as a group at a moderate pace and will take breaks along the way for snacks and lunch. This is not a ride for beginners and participants should be prepared to be riding for around 4 hours. After the ride, participants will be invited to an outdoor beer garden for some well deserved refreshments! See the registration page for more details.

To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
