MAPC Ride Series – Minuteman to Bruce Freeman to Assabet Trail Connections @ West Concord Commuter Rail Station
Aug 16 @ 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm

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
