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.
