Bike Friday commuter convoy to Boston

Commuter convoys to Boston are hibernating until spring.  We hope you'll join us then for rides to Government Center and the Longwood Medical Area.

The BPTF is once again leading bike convoys to the monthly 2015 Boston bike rallies at Government Center. Join us for a leisurely ride via the Charles River paths, assembling at Newton City Hall at 6:30am on one 
Friday each month: April 24, May 15, June 26, July 24, and August 28.  It's all on our calendar and at http://www.bikefridays.org/.  Whether you're not sure how to safely commute to Boston, or you just want to enjoy some company on a beautiful morning ride along the Charles, please join us.

Meeting points to join the convoy:
6:30am Newton City Hall
6:40am Walnut St. at Washington Park in Newtonville
6:50am Laundry Brook footbridge in Watertown Square

The convoy arrives at City Hall Plaza in Boston around 7:30, where a free breakfast (courtesy of Boloco, Whole Foods, Larabar, and Iggy's Bread) and expo are held.  Full details at BikeFridays.org.
