The 23rd annual Bike to the Sea Day ride is on Sunday, June 7 at 8:30 a.m.
The Melrose Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee invites Melrosians to meet at 7:50 a.m. (leave promptly at 8:00) at the corner of Main and East Foster for an informal bike convoy to the ride’s start at the Madeline English School, 105 Woodville St. in Everett. There’s a 14-mile roundtrip family ride and a 20-mile ride to Lynn/Nahant beach followed by lunch at the Dockside Restaurant on Centre Street in Malden. Comfortable pace, very family friendly. There are police escorts for the portions of the ride that are on the road. Starting the ride in Melrose will add 3 miles to the ride on both ends.
The ride starts at 9 a.m. Registration is available online (includes lunch) or participants can register the day of the ride starting at 8:30 a.m.
Some of the trail is unpaved so wider tires are recommended.
Helmets required. Riders 8 and up allowed. Under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
The event is a lot of fun and supports a great cause—to support completion of a community path from Everett through Malden to Nahant Beach.
