Running...Paddling...and now Biking!

That's right, a new component to MyRWA's signature Herring Run and Paddle - although non-competitive in nature!

As part of MyRWA's annual Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle race, which includes a 5K road race and three paddling races, Bike to the Sea, in conjunction with the Somerville Bicycle Committee, has been invited to lead a ride as part of day's festivities.  The ride will take place along existing paths on both sides of the Mystic River through Somerville and Medford, in addition to the recently completed Park at River's Edge along the Malden River.  Work should be starting on the first Bike to the Sea segment in Everett, which will also be included in the route.  

Plan on one hour's ride with an option for an additional hour.  Steady rain cancels the event. Bring your own bike and helmet.

***PLEASE NOTE***Hybrid bikes (or a very sturdy road bike) are strongly recommended due to some off-road sections that are non-paved.

Meet at Blessing of the Bay Boathouse, 32 Shore Drive, Somerville at 11 a.m. for the 11:15 ride kick-off.
