2022 Neighborhood Ride Series: Mattapan “Tour de Farms”
May 14 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Join the BCU on a slow-pace, 5-mile bike ride around Mattapan to visit the Edgewater Food Forest and the Fowler Clark Epstein Farm to checkout their seedling sale. While we will do our best to keep everyone safe, this ride is primarily on roads that do not have bike paths or bike lanes so participants should feel comfortable biking on roads and able to ride up and down small hills.
We can provide up to 15 BlueBikes for participants who indicate in advance that they would like a free bike for the ride. Please indicate this when you sign up.
At the end of the ride we will have a community celebration with music by A Trike Called Funk, snacks from P & R Ice Cream, and a guided tour of the Boston Nature Center.
(In case you were thinking of driving your bike here, there are very few parking spaces at Boston Nature Center. We encourage you to bike to the start and if it’s far from your home, there will be more neighborhood rides this year that are closer to you!)
*Restrooms will be available at Boston Nature Center | Please No bikes on lawn area
How to Prepare
Please bring water with you. We will have jugs to refill water bottles. Helmets are encouraged but not required. We will have a bike pump, but no other tools so your bike should be in working condition. Let us know that you want to take a BlueBike and we can get one for you.
