Neponset Greenway Spring Bike Ride
Celebrate the astronomical end of winter with a bike ride along Boston Harbor
and the Neponset River Greenway from Castle Island to Paul's Bridge
and back. We'll be especially interested in looking at the sections
where construction is currently going on between the current trail loose
ends in Milton and Mattapan.
We'll be riding on moderate terrain with very little climbing for
a distance of a bit over 25 miles.

You can turn around at Pope John Paul II Park or Mattapan Square. Because you cannot take your bike on the "High-Speed" (Ashmont-Mattapan) trolley line, the closest T station to most of the ride is Ashmont on the Red Line, but it is a hike. In Mattapan and Hyde Park, we'll be near bus lines with bike racks which can get you to a T station or maybe home. North of PJPII Park, the Savin Hill and Andrew Red Line stations are closest.
