|The Melrose to Boston Bike Fridays
The Melrose Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee will again lead a bicycle convoy from Melrose to downtown Boston on five Friday mornings between April and August. This is a great way to try out a bike commute. Experienced riders also enjoyed having a group of compatriots for their journey. The group leaves from the corner of Main St and Foster St by the YMCA at 7:00am and arrives at City Hall Plaza in Boston just before 8:00am. Opportunities are available to partner up with an experienced buddy or a group for the ride home.Our convoy is one of several that converges on Boston, where we we are met with a mini-festival with plenty of free give-aways. 2013 was the first year that the Boston Bike Friday events included a convoy from a community north of the city, and the Melrose Ped/Bike committee is thrilled to build on that success by coordinating it for a third year in 2015.2015 ride dates (all Friday mornings):April 24
