Discover new places and interesting routes between them on rides organized by the Cambridge Bicycle Committee. Most tours are themed, with brief talks and an informational brochure of images, text and map. The tours are accessible to all bike riders, moving at an easy pace in a group escorted by the Cambridge Police bicycle patrol. The rides are free of charge and end with free refreshments!
Join the Cambridge Bicycle Committee for the most stylish bike ride in Cambridge! On this leisurely 13-mile, two-hour ride, we'll trace the bow-tie shaped boundaries of the city and celebrate cycling in Cambridge! Look at the ride brochure for more information on the route.
We will assemble at and depart from the Cambridge Public Library Main Branch, and we'll be escorted by the Cambridge Police Department's Bike Patrol. Midway through the ride, there will be a brief break at Danehy Park. The ride will end back at the Cambridge Public Library with a light lunch supplied by our food and beverage donors: Saloniki Greek, Felipe's, and Trader Joe's. The ride will be supported by bicycle mechanics from Crimson Bikes.
All riders are eligible for a discount from OoOtie, Boston's only independent bow tie company. Use BOWTIERIDE for 30% off and free shipping on any item from www.OoOtie.com. There will also be a bow-tie tying lesson before the ride.
The ride will be cancelled in the case of heavy rain. Announcements regarding rain will be sent to the Cambridge Bikes email list, posted on the ride Facebook event, and indicated on this site. There is no registration or charge for the tour - just show up and enjoy!
