We’re meeting at Copley Sq at 6 (leaving at 6:30), riding along the river, harbor, and through the South End before making it to Kings at 8pm for bowling and beverages. Plus there’s Karaoke!
Friday May 18th: Bike Friday at City Hall Plaza, 7am -10am, join your fellow local bike commuters as they ride from destinations all around the region converging at Boston’s City Hall for free breakfast and tons of smiles.
Sunday May 20th: Allston/Brighton’s D-14 Child Safety Day, 10am – 2pm, at 301 Washington Street. It’ll be featuring a CW-hosted Bike Rodeo and Obstacle Course, with free helmets and a few kids bikes to give away, and free ice cream and hot dogs and a moon bounce and tons of prizes! Bring your kid, or your inner-kid, out to a great day in Allston.
SO MUCH BIKES! These are great opportunities to get out and ride with others. In our opinion, there’s nothing quite as fun as a good group ride.
and of course every week is bike week for CommonWheels, so keep up with us and we hope to see you at all our happenings all season long.
