Neponset River Greenway Spring Ride
This ride follows Truman Parkway north along the Neponset River, then
cuts through Milton along the river to Dorchester Lower Mills, where
we'll cross the river and bike through Olmsted-designed Dorchester
Park. We'll follow John Adams' commuting route, turning off it to
go over Ashmont Hill to Boston Harbor. After stops at Victory Road
Park and Phillips' Candies, we'll follow the Neponset Trail back to
Milton and ride a bit of the Boston side of the river to Hyde Park,
where we will cross back to Truman Parkway and return to the start.
Next month, we'll ride beyond the Greenway.
The trolleys are back on the High-Speed Line!
