On Sunday, June 5th, MassBike, the New England Cycling Coalition for Diversity, and our coalition partners hosted the Kittie Knox Ride. The weather was perfect for the over 130 riders who joined the educational cycling tour in honor of Kittie Knox and Riverside Cycle Club. The City of Boston event proclaimed June 5, 2022, to be Kittie Knox Day and all attendees were provided a set of informational cards to describe the historical sites along the way.
The educational stops included Kittie Knox's former residence on Cambridge St and the Riverside Cycle Club site. Riders also stopped at Knox's gravesite in Mount Auburn Cemetery. We were honored to have Nancy Towle Millet, a relative of Kittie, join us at the gravesite and share her family photo album.
Thank you to Biogen for sponsoring the ride and to all our ride leaders from New England Cycling Coalition for Diversity (NECCD), coalition partners, and volunteers who ensured it was a smooth event.
We hope to host another ride in honor of Kittie and the Riverside Cycle Club in the future, but in the meantime, you can use the routes below to put together your own Kittie Knox Ride. The routes include the historical points of interest along the way. Please note, that Mount Auburn Cemetary does not allow bicycling in the cemetery, please lock your bike up at the rack by the entrance gate before walking to Kittie's gravesite should you decide to visit.
