Harbor to Hills Greenway Bike Ride

Sat, 03/23/2013 - 10:00am

Celebrate the coming of spring from the seat of your bicycle by exploring the Neponset River Greenway, end to end, all the way from Boston Harbor to the Blue Hills. Join Boston Natural Areas Network Board member and Greenway Council member and cycling enthusiast Jessica Mink for an informative, free, guided ride to experience the entire Greenway first hand. This annual tradition of riding the Greenway from “Harbor to Hills” is a great way to put this winter’s dreary weather behind you.

Riders will meet at 10:00 a.m. Paul’s Bridge parking area on Brush Hill Road at the Neponset River Parkway on the Milton/Hyde Park line. The route will follow off-road bike paths such as the Neponset Greenway trail and Harborwalk, as well as incorporate some street riding. The ride is 13 miles one way and participants can complete all or part of the trip. Helmets are required. For more information about this free ride or to register please call 617-542-7696 or email info@bostonnatural.org
