Please join the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and its partners for a bike tour of the Trip-Community Greenway, a multi-use path through Stoneham, Woburn and Winchester. The ride is part of a summer series of rides exploring some of the Boston region's most exciting greenways, with a focus on locations where key gaps in the corridors must be closed. The ride will last about 3 hours, including stops and discussion along the way, and ending with a drink at a local establishment.
1st Rendezvous Point, 5:30 PM: The start of the Minuteman Bike Trail at Alewife Station; Look for David Loutzenheiser. David will lead the group from Alewife up the Alewife Greenway to the Mystic River Path and up on the Mystic Valley Parkway to:
2nd Rendezvous Point, 6:00 PM: Sandy (Shannon) Beach at Plaque near beach adjacent to parking lot. From there the group will proceed to Wedgemere Station and then trace the route of the Bikeway currently under construction and designated bike routes through Winchester and into Woburn, looking at how the concerns of multiple jurisdictions and various interests were addressed in many twists and turns of the project. The tour will be on existing paths, streets and sidewalks where they exist but will also be on unpaved surfaces. The tour won’t cover the whole route but depending on timing and interest will reach the tunnel under route 93 before turning around. The ride will end by around 8 PM in Winchester Center where the group can enjoy a beverage and bite to eat.
Please let David Loutzenheiser, DLoutzenheiser@mapc.org know you are participating so the organizers have an idea of numbers—but don’t hesitate to just show up!
