Take an easy ride, about 14 miles among bicycle-related historical sites with Larry Finison, author of the acclaimed books Boston's Cycling Craze, 1880-1900 and Boston's Twentieth Century Bicycling Renaissance. 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.
