Celebrate Adventure Cycling's Bike Travel Weekend with Bikabout's founders on a weekend getaway to Cape Cod!
It’s Thanksgiving. You’ve probably traveled. Even if you didn’t descend upon someone else’s house, someone probably descended upon yours. The result is always the same: Come Friday after Thanksgiving, you’re ready to get out of whatever house you spent the prior day over-indulging in, and go do …something. Traditionally in America, this has meant waking up at an obscene pre-dawn hour to go wait in huge lines at big box stores to get a discount on a flat screen tv you didn’t exactly need. We at Bikabout feel there’s a better way to spend Black Friday.
The Berkshires to Boston Bicycle Tour is a four-day, 240 mile bike tour showcasing the best of Massachusetts cycling. Beginning in the scenic Berkshire hills along the New York border, the tour meanders through the Connecticut River Valley and spins through the historic communities of Lexington and Concord before arriving in the vibrant capital - Boston. There, riders join more than 5,000 cycling enthusiasts for Hub on Wheels, Boston's annual bicycling festival.
"Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world" -Susan B. Anthony.
BIKABOUT wants to honor mothers with a family friendly bike ride along the beautiful Charles River.
