Celebrate Biking: Fun Free Events!

As I plan a move to rural Vermont, I become more and more appreciative of how bikeable metro Boston has become.  I’ve lived here for 7 years without owning a car and have loved it!

May is bike month and this week is Bay State Bike Week and Bike to Work Week.  In other words, it’s the perfect time of year to take advantage of fun free events that bike advocacy groups are holding.  If you stored your bike for the winter, it’s time to dust it off, pump up your tires, and get back on the road!  Cities in the greater Boston area have been doing a lot to make biking easier – bike lanes and paths now connect most communities in the area.  This is the week to learn more about what’s going on in your community, check out your local bike advocacy organization, participate in the fun, and get psyched for a season of cycling.  Tons of events are posted in this calendar, and I’ve highlighted the fun ones in the Somerville area below:

-Read about the Rush Hour Race in which a biker beat a T rider and driver from Davis to Kendall.

Somerville Bike Committee’s Commuter Breakfast by Star Market and Petsi’s Pies on Beacon St. Thursday (moved due to rain) from 7:30-9am

Boston Bikes Bike Week Celebration Friday includes free breakfast!

Tours of the Mystic Basin Trails (11am) and Parks of Somerville (2pm) on Sunday.  These are awesome places for Somerville residents to know about, but it really does help to be shown the way by a guide your first time!
