Bike ride as part of the Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle

As part of the Mystic River Watershed Association's annual road and boat race (Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle), Bike to the Sea, in conjunction with the Somerville Bicycle Committee, has again 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 wildly popular Park at River's Edge along the Malden River.  The ride will also feature the brand new Wellington Greenway as well as the first Bike to the Sea segment in Everett.  

Plan on a 90 minute ride with an option for an additional hour.  Steady rain cancels the event.  ***PLEASE NOTE***Hybrid bikes (or a very sturdy road bike) are recommended due to some off-road sections that are non-paved.  This is a family-friendly ride. 

Meet at Blessing of the Bay Boathouse in Somerville @ 11 a.m. for the 11:15 ride kick-off.  For more information, contact Pete Sutton at
