No Rider Left Behind!
In 2013, rides begin the earliest they’ve ever started! Rides begin on Monday, May 13, and continue throughout the summer weekly, depending on the availability of ride leaders. Meet in front of Newton Free Library (the Homer Street entrance, near the bike rack) at 5:45pm. All rides begin at 6:00pm sharp.
These rides are designed to show bicyclists that riding on the road with traffic is safe and enjoyable; routes all involve a mix of residential and arterial roads, including intersections with traffic lights. The pace is slow to moderate.
Watch for Sunday Middle-Schooler Rides beginning in June!
- be accompanied by an adult if under 12 years of age
- wear a helmet
- have a bike in good working order
- be ready to ride 7-8 miles on roads and in traffic
Note: ride routes may change at the discretion of ride leaders and/or agreement by participants. (e.g. if it’s unanimous on a Cordingly Dam day that everyone would rather go to Echo Bridge, so be it, or if part of a route appears unsafe for participants, leaders may make last-minute adjustments.)
