Battle Road Bike Tour – Pedaling in Pursuit of the 1775 Minutemen
October 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am
Join Cornell alum Lauren Hefferon, founder of Ciclismo Classico, on a bucolic 29 mile bike ride that follows the battle path of the first military engagement that sparked the American Revolution. The ride starts in Arlington with stops along the path of battle taken on April 19, 1775 in Lexington, Bedford and Concord. This Battleroad byway we pedal is lush, lovely and bursting with history at every turn. There will also be photo stops at the Arlington Great Meadow, the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
This pedaling excursion includes several stops for restrooms, water, snacks and three gift shops. Reasonably fit adults can manage this ride with decent bicycles. Flat pedal bicycles, upright handlebars, baskets and streamers are welcome. Families with children 12 and older aboard multi-gear bicycles are welcome. This ride is accessible from the nearby Alewife MBTA station, where bike share options are available. There is no cost for the guided bike ride. Further details regarding the bike ride can be found online.
