Bikeweek 1999
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Commute a Better Way Day

May 26th 1999

An event to promote all alternative modes of transportation, including cycling.

The City of Cambridge encourages everyone who lives or works in Cambridge to commute a better way (walk, bike, take the T, or carpool/vanpool) on May 26th (and every other day of the year).

An information fair will be held at Cambridge City Hall (795 Mass. Ave.; Central Sq. T stop) from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, with special events at lunch (including prizes, bike tuneups, and the introduction of a new bike safety bumper sticker designed by an elementary school student).

Contact: Joe Barr, City of Cambridge.

Explore East Cambridge, Thursday, May 20, 6:30 pm

Urban evening ATB ride of about 10 diverse miles; mountain or hybrid bikes de rigueur. Explore retro-grunge industrial sub-culture, including the new MBTA engine terminal, Lechmere area, Kendall + Tech Squares, and the MIT campus. Lots of dirt, gravel, glass, steps, ramps and other choice terrain. Start: Boston - Copley Square Park, Boylston Street between Clarendon and Dartmouth. Directions: Mass Pike or Storrow Drive to Copley Square exits; parking chancy. Call for details if needed. Charles Hansen.
