Ride to the Blues Barge
August 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a ride to the Blues Barge at the Boston Harbor Hotel on Rowes Wharf. August 13th it will be the “Sweetbeats” in concert. We will start in Newtonville and ride to the waterfront, about half the route along the Charles River. We can check out the band on the Blues Barge for a while, then head to South Station along the Greenway, or stop in Chinatown first for a bite to eat, before heading to South Station. (Riders may bike back to Newton as well.) Trains depart at 7:45, 8:35, 9:35 and 10:30pm, stopping in Newtonville, West Newton and Auburndale.
Meet in front of the Star Market on Austin St. in Newtonville, and we’ll leave at 6pm. This is a family-friendly, “no-rider-left-behind” ride and all ages are invited, but all young children must be accompanied by an adult. Bike helmets are required. And since part of this will be after dark, please have front and rear lights, and a light shirt/jacket. 11 miles roundtrip (with the train). Be sure to check bikenewton.org for last-minute changes.
