Take an easy ride, about 14 miles among bicycle-related historical sites 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 former bicycle racetrack. We will ride in a group -- nobody will be left behind.
