Great end to Bay State Bike Week! Melrose Convoy to Boston was successful.
Today, about 10 Melrose residents met at the Main Street YMCA for the first Melrose Bike Convoy to Boston. These folks joined up with more bikers at two other designated stops, getting 8 or so joining in Malden and another 25+ people as they connected in Everett with another convoy coming from East Boston. Approximately 40 people on bikes rolled over the Mystic River toward Charlestown!
With both the Melrose and East Boston convoy routes being new, this is the first time there have been any formal groups coming from north of Boston and east of I-93 for Bay State Bike Week, and it will happen again on three other Fridays this summer. Mark your calendars for the remaining “Bike into Boston Fridays”: June 28, July 26, August 30.
Special thanks to Steve Liebman, Melrose resident and Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee member, who organized this. For more on this Committee, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
