Meeting at West Concord commuter rail station at 3pm
The Minuteman, Bruce Freeman, and Assabet Trails are close to being built out in this area. They come close together but do not connect. This ride will scope out potential routes of future trails that can connect these. The ride will be a loop taking in a newly completed section of the Bruce Freeman and well as Assabet Rail Trails. There is about a mile of wide packed dirt trail, so 32mm+ tires recommended.
Leaders – David Loutzenheiser and Jeff Collins

Join the City of Cambridge, MAPC, our partners, and other members of the public for a forum on autonomous vehicles (AVs).
Pre-registration is appreciated, but not required.
The City of Cambridge has begun the process of creating a Future of Mobility Implementation Blueprint to help prepare for and shape new mobility options in a way that meets our community goals, meets the mobility needs of all people who live in, work in, and visit Cambridge, and is well integrated with our sustainable transportation system. This forum is an opportunity for you to:
- learn about the role of the Local, State, and Federal government in managing AVs,
- hear from researchers who are thinking about the interactions between AVs and people, and
- engage with the people behind the technology to gain a better understanding of the state of the technology, plans for the future, and challenges.
