Enjoy a long day in the saddle on one of the longest days of the year!  This flat route heads north to Maine on inland roads and returns via the coast.  Lots of chances to stop and take in views and refuel.  A great opportunity for those looking to set a new personal distance record.

Adults please sign up as usual and please print out, fill out, and bring this waiver for each participating child.

We ride from Wayland to the Waltham end of the trail and back all at a gentle pace so we can stay together. 

This ride is intended for 10 to 15-year-old kids on solo bikes and younger kids on tandems or in kiddie seats.  Parents are expected to stay near their children, to help keep things moving, and to make sure that all cross safely at intersections. 

The trail is under construction on the Waltham side.  If it is not yet paved please avoid exploring as it may be dangerous.  I’ll bring Kind bars or something like that to hand out at the stop.

On return to Wayland Center we can lunch together.  These two restaurants are near each other.

The Bagel Place          https://mybageltable.com/menu_type/main/

Or bring your own food.

There is a grass strip between the parking lot and the bike path where we could spread some blankets and picnic. 

I hope to use this ride as an opportunity to get input from parents about what types of family rides they would like to see in the future, what distances are suitable for their kids as well as what kinds of roads and terrain.

Join us for the first CRW Diversity ride as we gather with Ride for Black Lives Boston (RFBL), Bikes Not Bombs, Boston Bike Party, and other organizations in riding in solidarity against acts of oppression, police brutality, and violence against people of color. This ride by RFBL Boston will focus on riding in solidarity celebrating Black Joy. Black People in our communities are able to find happiness even in the presence if multiple, ongoing challenges and tribulations that are rooted in white supremacy and a history of racial oppression.  We begin our CRW ride just outside the New England Aquarium, where we will take a short urban ride to White Stadium in Roxbury. Once there, we'll meet with RFBL who will begin a presentation at 11:30 am, which includes speeches, music and other activities. Once the presentations conclude, there will slow-rolling march back to downtown. This is a diversity event that includes some riding, however, it will be a slow roll so wear a kit, don't wear a kit... ride your commuter bike, fixie or whatever you wish.      

Once the presentation by RFBL concludes, we will riding from Franklin Park to the BREATHE LIFE TOGETHER BLOCK PARTY at DEWEY SQUARE. Please bring locks for your bike if you plan to stay for the event. Free and open to all, the Breathe Life Together Block Party will feature a pop-up roller rink, free skate rentals, live music, performances, live DJs, painting and food trucks to celebrate and activate Rob "ProBlak" Gibbs mural Breathe Life Together. Together we aim to cultivate accessible, collective public space of joy, care sustenance and belonging that centers and supports diverse communities, families, and youth from across Boston.
