Annual Historic Theme Ride: Around Medford in 1855
Saturday, Sept. 26
10 A.M. - Noon
Meet at Whole Foods Market Medford, 2151 Mystic Valley Pkwy.
Co-sponsored with the Medford Historical Society & Museum (MHS&M), this family-friendly historic bicycle tour will explore people and places in Medford as if it were 1855. We’ll visit some familiar sites and chronicle what their function was in the year that Charles Brooks published his “History of Medford".
Not only will bike riders learn some history, but we'll be mixing in some lessons on bike skills, too. Group rides like this are the perfect way for those new to riding to explore and learn on the road with safety and confidence.
Free for MHS&M members and riders 18 & under, $5.00 for non-members. Lunch is included, courtesy of Whole Foods Medford. Helmets are required.
Sign up on the Facebook event page.
The tour will end at the Mystic River Celebration at the Condon Shell.
