Join AARP Massachusetts and MassBike for our "Biking Beyond 50: Worcester" workshop series for adults 50+ interested in getting back on their bicycles, looking for a refresher on bike safety, and expanding their biking comfort level. We're teaming up to host in-person sessions based in the City of Worcester. 

AARP Intergenerational Bicycle Program

MassBike received an AARP Community Challenge grant to host a series of intergenerational workshops & community rides in Worcester. The workshops will cover a diverse set of topics, including urban cycling basics, overcoming barriers to bicycling, highlighting the storied cycling history in Worcester, and more.

Upcoming Events

Weekend Group Ride

Sunday, September 25th - 10am-1pm, Blackstone Heritage Corridor Visitor Center at Worcester

The best part about biking is biking with friends! Join MassBike and riders from the local Worcester community for a casual-paced group bike ride along the bike paths and quiet streets of Worcester.

We'll check out the Blackstone Heritage Corridor to learn about the history and origins of the industrial revolution, and we'll likely stop for ice cream along the way. A working bicycle, helmet, and appropriate clothing like close-toe shoes are required for this ride.
