A huge thank you goes out to all the supporters, volunteers and riders of our inaugural Berkshires to Boston Bicycle Tour, which took place during Massachusetts Car-Free Week (September 18-22). This epic, four-day adventure from one end of the Commonwealth to the other brought together riders from all over the world and nation. Almost 100 riders rode some of Massachusetts' picture-perfect roads just as the Fall foliage was starting to emerge. Add to that the highlight of the Hub on Wheels Festivities and riding on a car-free Storrow Drive!
Proceeds from the event support MassBike's advocacy and education work, including youth and adult bicycle education courses, legislative action, and our Bikeable Communities Program, plus fun rides and events that support safer and more accessible bicycling throughout the Commonwealth.
Special thanks to our gracious sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible. And even more gratitude to Gary Briere - the founder and visionary of the Berkshires to Boston Bicycle Tour - without whose years of commitment and persistence the tour simply would not have happened.
If you missed out this year (or simply want to re-live the glory of the Tour), all event photos are posted on Facebook. Riders, please like us on Facebook and tag yourselves!
Thanks again for riding, and we hope to see you again at future MassBike events!
