RAIN CANCELLED -- Leisurely Bicycle part of the Minuteman Trail

EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO HEAVY RAIN AND LIGHTENING.

John just bought a new bike! Yay! He and Laura (the other Late Riser organizer) thought it might be a fun idea to take our bikes and do a leisurely ride up the Minuteman Bike Trail starting at Spy Pond Park in Arlington.

Our plan is to bike up the path 10 miles enjoying the day at a nice leisurely pace, stop in Lexington to get ice cream (or perhaps more) and then bike back. A typical bike goes 13 mph. A fast bike goes 30 mph. We're planning on going 9 to 10 mph -- so the trip up will only be an hour up -- and an hour back.

With 1 hour biking to Lexington and 1 hour back, it's important that you bring some fluids to keep you hydrated. You might want to pack a snack or lunch, too.

OUR START TIME IS 2:00. MEET AT THE CIRCLE AT SPY POND PARK. IT IS LEFT TO YOU TO FIGURE OUT WHERE TO PARK YOUR CAR AND GET YOURSELF TO THE SPY POND PARK MEETING PLACE.

See you at 1:45 PM. We go at 2:00 PM. If you're late, try to catch up!

    GREAT idea! FINALLY someone is biking at my speed! Other bike groups have left me in the dust. Especially when I want to stop for ice cream!

    However if the weather is fantastic, I might make it my last summer beach day.

      I used to ride with America's first cycling club.. for which I donated a motto: Leave your dead and wounded behind.

      Yes! Ice cream deserves an honored place in a civilized cycling/hiking club.

    Definite maybe pending weather! I like the civilized hours this group has invented for itself.
