Discover new places and interesting routes between them on rides organized by the Cambridge Bicycle Committee. Most tours are themed, with brief talks and an informational brochure of images, text and map. The tours are accessible to all bike riders, moving at an easy pace in a group escorted by the Cambridge Police bicycle patrol. The rides are free of charge and end with free refreshments!
Join the Cambridge Bicycle Committee for a leisurely ride through the streets of Cambridge as part of the city's annual Bike Month activities. The theme of this spring's bike tour is a celebration of women’s history in Cambridge, passing sites associated with fascinating women who have left their mark on literature, education, law, science, music, culinary arts, law enforcement, architecture, civil rights, public health and more.
We will start at the Cambridge Public Library Main Branch with a brief introduction. The ride itself will take about two hours and will include a couple short stops along the way related to the ride's theme. Check out the route below! We'll be escorted by the Cambridge Police Department's Bike Patrol. The ride will end back at the Cambridge Public Library with snacks.
Additionally, we need you and your bike to try out a new model of bicycle rack! The Flycycle rack emerged from the MIT Climate CoLab Competition as a possible solution for accessible, high density bike parking for Cambridge. This beautiful rack needs to be tested using a variety of bicycle types. There will be racks on hand before and after the ride so please stop by, try it out, and give us your thoughts!
The ride will be cancelled in the case of heavy rain. Announcements regarding rain will be sent to the Cambridge Bikes email list and posted on this site. There is no registration or charge for the tour - just show up and enjoy!
Many thanks to our sponsors: Left on Pearl, Rejjee, Trader Joe's, and the RSTA Culinary Arts program!!
