Charles River History Ride Thursday morning
10:15 AM Thursday, July 6: Take an easy bike ride, about 12 miles among bicycle-related historic sites along the Charles in Waltham, Weston and Newton with Larry Finison, author of the acclaimed book Boston’s Cycling Craze, 1880-1900. Visit and learn where bicycles were built, where bicyclists by the hundreds hung out and picnicked by the Charles River, and about Waltham’s own former bicycle racetrack. Ride start is at the Duck Feeding Area on Norumbega Road in Weston. The ride finishes around 1 PM; Lunch afterward at Bruegger’s Bagels in Auburndale.
Ride to the Waltham Fireworks
Avoid driving to the fireworks at Leary Field! Parking there would be a nightmare. So, ride in, take the T, or park in an empty downtown parking lot to meet at 8 PM behind City Hall. We’ll go to Leary Field, mostly on lightly-traveled streets for the oldies concert underway there and park bicycles against the fence at the Putnam School: bring a lock. Bicycle lights will be available in return for a refundable deposit. Social hour after the fireworks at Tap and Table.
