On Saturday, May 13th, join REI and MassBike for a free, social pace 10-mile bike ride from the Cambridge REI store and end at Lamplighter Brewery, led by local members of the Boston cycling community. This ride will be no-drop and riders of all levels are encouraged to join us!

Meet at 11:30 a.m. at the REI Cambridge store (181 Morgan Ave #11, Cambridge, MA 02141). The ride will depart at noon and last approximately 90 minutes, including a few stops. Helmets are required and participants are encouraged to bring ride snacks, water, and a flat kit. If it is actively raining, the ride will be postponed to Sunday, May 14th at the same time and place. Please register below!

Post-ride, REI’s neighbor Lamplighter Brewing Co. (110 N First St, Cambridge, MA 02141) will host a launch party for the special, limited-time REI & Lamplighter collaboration beer called "Well Spoke" from 2-5 p.m. This is a North German pilsner and will be a refreshing way to toast with friends to the completion of your ride. All riders receive a complimentary beverage of their choice after the ride in Lamplighter’s taproom (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available).

Even if you are not joining us for the ride, feel free to join us for the launch party. A portion of the beer sales proceeds benefits Bikes Not Bombs. The launch party is family-friendly, free to attend, and will include opportunities to get REI coupons and win prizes.

REI's Mobile Bike Shop Pop-up and REI bike techs will be on site for free bike checks and quick fixes. We will be offering e-bike rides.

The REI Cambridge store is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. See more information here:
