Join us for the kick-off ride of our Unity in Community series on Saturday, April 22nd 2023! Whether you’ve been biking all winter or, like some of us here at the shop, left your bike in storage while we wait for warmer weather, this event is for you! Thaw out your bike and come together to join in community and blossom with your friends in the larger bike-pedestrian organizing and advocacy space.
It does not matter if you are a newcomer to the scene, or a long time Boston-area cyclist, come mingle and network with your peers before setting out on a route that features some of the bike paths that will be connected by Mayor Wu’s Everyone Deserves Safe Streets plan.
If your bike needs some TLC, Bikes Not Bombs apprentices will provide basic cleaning and air/brakes/chain checks. There will be socializing galore, opportunities to connect with members of the Boston Transportation Department’s Active Transportation team, and the Boston Cyclists Union’s organizing team.
At Bikes Not Bombs, we recognize that bike access may be an issue, and we are grateful that Bluebikes has offered free Adventure Passes for anyone wanting to join. Use the code UNITYRIDE1 in the Bluebikes mobile app for a free daily Adventure Pass.
