Cyclists will relive Boston’s bicycle history by retracing key two-wheeled landmarks from the late 1800s to commemorate when Boston emerged as the epicenter of a national bicycling craze.
Starting at the site of the spectacular city-sponsored race on the Boston Common in 1883, the team competition will involve both mental and physical challenges taking participants from one secret location containing bicycle history to another. 40 teams of three will race throughout the city to fight for prizes and a victory celebration at the Bell in Hand Tavern, one of Boston’s oldest taverns and a part of bicycle history. Teams must collect stamps from 10 spots of historical significance.
Register and begin the ride at Copley Square, 560 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Registration is free and open to the first 40 teams or 120 riders. All bicycle types are accepted.
