411: This is ride is meant to introduce children to the fun, excitement and fitness benefits that come from riding bikes in the woods and to teach respect for the parks, trails, and other trail users.. The ride will be well staffed and every safety precaution will be observed. Parents are welcome on the ride, but not required. Riders must have a serviceable bike, properly fitting helmet, and water for the ride. Snacks will be provided! (If you cannot supply a bike or helmet for your child, please let Tim Post or Lynn Hildenbrand know as soon as possible and we'll see if we can arrange something.) Please preregister with Lynn Hildenbrand at 781-662-5214.

Note: There will be 3 more rides throughout the summer and then a Kid's Mountain Biking Festival in October. Please join us for one or all!
