Join us for the 35th annual Bike-A-Thon on September 11th, 2022!
Riders can choose to ride 10 miles, 30 miles, 50 miles or 100 miles on some of the best routes in Eastern Massachusetts. All of the routes head west-southwest from Jamaica Plain with 'cutoffs' for the different route options.
GPX routes are available below by ride to view on Ride with GPS.
The Emerald Necklace route is perfect for the whole family, taking advantage of cycling paths wherever possible in Franklin Park, along the Southwest Corridor Park, and near Jamaica Pond. The rest stop in Franklin Park is located halfway through the route with easy access to a playground. Some urban riding skills are required.
Clocking in at exactly 34.5 miles, this route is perfect for cyclists who don’t want to spend all day riding but still want to get a great workout in! This route takes riders through Roslindale, West Roxbury, Newton, and Needham out to Weston, where riders can fuel up at our rest stop at the Spellman Stamp Museum before riding back to Jamaica Plain.
After splitting off from the 30 mile route in Weston, the 50 mile route shines as riders pass through beautiful landscapes in Lincoln, Concord, and Wayland. This route utilizes well-maintained, quiet roads as it weaves past conservation land, picturesque farms, and historic homes.
Our 100 mile route to Harvard is back for another great year! Riders will enjoy smooth, scenic stretches as the route winds north past Minute Man National Park to quiet country roads in Acton, Littleton, Harvard, and Stow. With some of the best scenery in the Metro West, riders will be well rewarded for this challenging ride! At 105 miles with 5,700 ft of elevation, riders should expect to train adequately for this ride.
