Circle the City Corridor and Necklace Ride
Sunday, June 24, 2012

Saturday, May 12, 2012 To celebrate Boston's first Circle the City event, we'll do a 10-mile circle around a piece of the city on existing and future bikepaths. From Franklin Park, we'll bike down into the Stony Brook valley and follow the Pierre Lallement Southwest Corridor Bike Path to Ruggles Ave., where we'll follow a possible future Connecting the Corridors trail over to the Emerald Necklace. Dealing with existing gaps in the Necklace, we'll follow it back to its southern terminus in Franklin Park.

This ride is sponsored by the Boston Cyclists Union and the Circle the City project.
