“If constellations had been named in the 20th century, I suppose we would see bicycles.”
The Trustees are excited to announce a unique partnership that celebrates nature, biking, and music! What could be better?
Since 2017, singer songwriter Peter Mulvey has had at least one tour exclusively via bicycle each year. The goal? He wanted to change the nature of what it meant to be a touring musician for himself. The decades of gas guzzling human-transport measures he had to interact with annually became a dilemma for Peter in sharing his art. In turn, he decided to make it his mission to have at least one tour a year to be traveled by human-power and found solace in doing so as he was already an avid cyclist.
Since its inception, Peter has pedaled to hundreds of gigs and across thousands of miles. He’s toured via bicycle along the west coast, southwest states, mountain states, the Midwest and the NE. This year, he will be touring exclusively with the Trustees, at five diverse properties across the Commonwealth. We encourage visitors to bicycle to the performance and experience the beauty of fall in New England.
On September 15, we are thrilled to host Peter for a special performance at Rocky Woods. This special musical event will take place at the pavilion by the Visitor’s Center, under the roof, where you’ll be welcome to sit at our picnic tables. The lawn nearby will also be available if you’d rather spread a blanket on the ground and stretch out. Bringing a picnic is highly encouraged. The site is a short walk from the parking lot and is wheelchair accessible.
