A great ride for cyclists of all abilities, including families with children! We ride south through JP on the Pierre Lallement Bike Path; pass by the Arnold Arboretum and make a moderate climb on Bellevue Hill into the woods of the Stony Brook Reservation. There is one rest stop at Kelly Field Playground in Hyde Park. We continue riding through Hyde Park into Mattapan, then head into Franklin Park going back to the starting point in the Southwest Corridor Park, where you’ll roll into the Green Roots Festival! Some urban safe-riding skills will be necessary. digital map / printable map & cue
On Sunday, December 11th, 2016 join the 20th Annual Ciclismo Classico Jingle Ride. This leisurely and festive singing bike parade goes from Arlington to Boston and back. The 22-mile bicycle ride rolls through Harvard Square, the Esplanade, Boston Common, and Newbury Street – we stop and sing carols at local landmarks, and just parade along showing some creative holiday spirit.
There will be free hot mulled cider and freshly-brewed coffee and pastries thanks to our starting-point hosts at the Kickstand Café. We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association! The ride also makes an optional warm-up stop at the Menotomy Grill & Tavern just a mile from the ride’s end – come enjoy some free appetizers and more! It’s a parade, not a race – so if you have a bicycle, we’d love your holiday spirit along for the ride! Join the Jingle Ride!
