Summer Greenway Ride and Walk Series

MAPC

Promoting Smart Growth & Regional Planning

2018 MAPC Summer
Greenway Ride and Walk Series

Join MAPC and some of our many partners to explore our growing greenway and trail network. This network is part of MAPC's LandLine vision to connect 1400 miles throughout the Boston Region.

The purpose of the ride and walk events is to show off new projects, and advocate for completing the missing gaps. The events will educate, entertain, and build the bond between users, designers, planners and advocates to work towards the goal of a connected active transportation network.

The ride and walk schedule below will be updated frequently so check back close to the event for further details.

Predicted heavy rain will reschedule the ride.

Minuteman to Bruce Freeman to Assabet Trail Connections

Meeting at West Concord commuter rail station - 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
