MLK Jr Tribute

Cancel ride: 
Reason for cancellation: 
Ride Start: 

This ride will honor the great Martin Luther King Jr who was born on 15 January 1929.

Civil rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and preacher Martin Luther King Jr (1929-1968) has impacted and inspired the lives of many, which is in part why this route will show us how the city of Boston shaped the life of this great man, from where he first met the love of his life to where he would shoot hoops after long days in the classroom at Boston University's School of Theology. More importantly, our ride will take us past where MLK Jr rallied over 20,000 to march down to Boston Commons calling attention to issues of diversity, race, education, employment, and economics.

Expect recovery pace ➡️27km/17mi ⬆️110m/370ft.

Meet near Martin Luther King Jr memorial in front of Boston University's Marsh Chapel.

Ride image: 

No snow on the ground. We can still draw our own snowflake Strava art.

Therefore, not every road is the most amazing. It has some of everything: rural, urban, and suburban roads. All paved, no dirt.

The six snowflake branches arrive at six different towns: Woburn, Arlington, Waltham, Weston, Concord, and Wilmington. Each town has a very distinct personality.

Thank you Ride Studio Café for inspiring this route.

After each branch we return to close to Lexington center. Every 50–60km, we stop at Cumberland Farms in Lexington to refill your insulated bottle with hot chocolate & coffee. Snacks & hot sandwiches are also available.

Complete as many snowflake branches as you wish. Drop early in Lexington center or join the group partway through the ride. We will share live location on club Slack #ride channel https://www.crw.org/content/slack

Expect moderate pace at 14–16mph.

Roads are sandy and possibly icy this time of year. Be extra careful. Be ready for lots of turns.

Meet by Captain John Parker statue.
