2017 Summer Greenway Rides and Walks

2017 Summer Greenway Rides and Walks

 Join MAPC and the LandLine Metro Boston Greenway Network for a series of bicycle rides and walking tours this summer!

The Boston region has a growing network of greenways that MAPC has branded as “LandLine”. Please join MAPC and its partners this summer on a series of eye opening bicycle rides and fun walks to explore these varied and scenic corridors focusing on location where we aim to solve problems of closing key gaps. Events will generally last about 3 hours, and include stops and discussion along the way, often ending with a drink at a local establishment. For more information and to register for a given ride, please contact the ride leader on this page.
