Cycle the City

Sunday, August 11, 2019 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM

This bicycling experience is a bit off the beaten path from typical AMC rides. The ride traverses metro Boston on the city's many bike paths and bike lanes in a loop around the city, taking in the many sights and points of interest. The ride will start at South Station, passing down the Greenway to Atlantic Avenue, and continue onto the USS Constitution. The ride then loops back along the Charles River, through the Fenway and Emerald Necklace and onto Jamaica Pond. It continues through the Arnold Arboretum to a lunch break off the path in Jamaica Plain.

East Bay Bike Path

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 9:45 AM to 4:30 PM

Join the Wednesday Wramblers for a fun day in beautiful Rhode Island as we enjoy an easy summer bike ride on the East Bay Bike Path between Providence and Bristol. Our roundtrip mileage will be approximately 28 miles on this mostly flat bike trail with beautiful ocean views. Plan to spend the day as we take time to explore Bristol's historic main street and waterfront. It is very likely that ice cream and fried clams will be consumed somewhere during or after the ride. Registration is required for this ride and we will send out information on the starting location prior to the ride.

I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.
