Join MAPC and the City of Malden to launch the new LandLine Trail and Greenway plan, a network of connected and protected walking & biking routes across Metro Boston, 5/16 @ 10 a.m.
MALDEN – Are you a bike commuter, cycling enthusiast, someone who enjoys walking, or just interested in getting out of your car more and back onto two wheels to get around?
Join MAPC and the City of Malden tomorrow to kick off the “LandLine” regional trail and greenway project, just in time for Bay State Bike Week!
Residents, city officials, MAPC planning staff and others from across the area will gather in Downtown Malden at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 16, 2018 to launch a new regional effort to link all of Greater Boston’s biking and walking trails together.
LandLine is a vision of interconnected transportation corridors across Metro Boston for walking and cycling. While our region boasts many trails and greenways, they are not linked by common signage or identity, and MAPC is working to change that.
The event on May 16 will kick off at the entrance to the Malden Riverwalk, 146 Canal St. in Malden, at 10 a.m. There will be remarks by Mayor Gary Christenson, Senator Jason Lewis, MAPC, and other local elected officials, followed by a celebration ride to Chelsea and Revere.
Cyclists can bring their own bikes or use one of the new LimeBike “dockless” bikes that officially launched last week in Malden as part of a new 15-community regional bike share system. Don’t forget to download the app ahead of time and pick up a bike at Malden Center! Use code “LIMELAUNCH” in the app to get 5 free rides!
The event is free and open to the public. RSVP @ https://conta.cc/2JLQP1n or just show up!
