Biking!

Postby stooge4ever » Sat Sep 15, 2007 6:03 pm UTC

Is anybody else planning on BIKING next Sunday? 2 reasons it would be good:
1) Save the parking fees or train fare
2) Quicker, easier escape from the raptors.

How about we get together as a group at a certain, free-parking location and bike the distance? Anybody know of a good place to do so (I'm out in Framingham, so I'm probably driving to Newton or Brookline).

Also, I would assume there are places to lock up the bikes, seeing as it's Cambridge, but is there enough for a potential swarm of us?

I'm planning to do this bike ride before the meetup.

From my experiences biking in Boston is a quick way to an early grave...

The one obvious place I can think of would be to park in Bedford and take the Minuteman in, although it's a boring (and occasionally crowded) ride. Then from Alewife you can take the linear path or Rindge Ave over to the meetup.

If you don't want to ride in all the way from Bedford, you could park in Lexington or even Arlington, and ride the trail in from there.

Bicycling in Boston is pretty easy. I've been doing it for decades now.
