Calling all cycling enthusiasts and supporters of better bicycling in Massachusetts! We are thrilled to introduce the Massachusetts Bike-Friendly Events Calendar. This initiative came directly from feedback we received after Bay State Bike Month where there were many requests for MassBike to host a digital events calendar year-round. Whether you're an avid cyclist, a passionate advocate, or simply interested in joining bike-related activities, we hope this calendar will become a go-to guide for all bike-friendly events across the Commonwealth.
What can you expect from the Massachusetts Bike-Friendly Events Calendar?
Our calendar serves as a platform to promote events that involve bicycles and aim to enhance bicycling across Massachusetts. It is a collaborative effort, featuring not only MassBike-hosted events but also submissions from bike-friendly advocates (like you!) from all corners of the state.
Here's a taste of the diverse range of bike-friendly events we'll host on our calendar:
- Group Bicycle Rides
- Kids Bike Rodeos
- Bicycling Education Events
- Trail Ribbon-Cuttings
- Public Meetings/Hearings about Bicycling Infrastructure Projects
- Bike Infrastructure Celebrations
- Bicycle Races & Charity Rides
This list is not exhaustive, and MassBike hopes to host all types of events that support and promote bicycling across the Commonwealth.
How can you contribute to the calendar?
We believe in inclusivity and community engagement, which is why we welcome public submissions for bike-friendly events. If you are hosting a bike-friendly event or want to help spread the word about a bike-related event happening in your community, please submit it to be included in the calendar. However, as the calendar host, MassBike reserves the right to remove events that do not align with our mission and values. If you have questions about whether or not your event is appropriate for the calendar, reach out to us at [email protected].
Important tips for attending events:
As many of the events listed on the calendar are submitted by advocates throughout the Commonwealth, we strongly recommend reaching out to event hosts for any specific details or updates before attending. This will ensure you have the most up-to-date information and can make the most of your experience.
Additionally, please note that only events with complete addresses will appear on the event map. So, make sure to browse through the list to ensure you don't miss out on events happening near you.
