Cycle the City: Boston Harbor, Charles & Neponset Rivers and the Emerald Necklace

Trip dates: Sunday, August 19, 2018 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM

This trip is for any bicyclists who want to experience a ride that links together Boston's many bike paths and lanes into a loop around the city, and enjoy the many sights and points of interest. The ride will start at South Station, passing down the Greenway to Atlantic Avenue, and onto the USS Constitution. The ride loops back along the Charles River, then through the Fenway and Emerald Necklace to Jamaica Pond. It continues through the Arnold Arboretum to a lunch break in Jamaica Plain, then traverses back through a slice of Franklin Park before joining the bike path along the Neponset River to Boston Harbor. The ride completes its journey along Boston Harbor near UMass Boston to Castle Island, then back to South Station.

The ride loops around the city for about 35 miles using primarily dedicated bike paths and bike lanes, with a few road connections between entry points. We'll go at a more relaxed pace since most of the ride traverses Boston's bike path network, with stops to cross streets at various crosswalks. We'll plan to make stops along the way at various points of interest for photo opportunities and sightseeing. We'll also plan to stop for lunch at the midpoint in Jamaica Plain.

Directions:

Bike are allowed on the MBTA on weekends.
