Cambridge Bow Tie Ride Sept. 30


CBC Bike Ride

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Ever notice that the city of Cambridge is shaped like a bow tie? Come see for yourself, at the Cambridge Bow Tie Ride! Join us for 13 scenic miles by bike, beginning and ending on the grounds of the beautiful and historic Richardsonian Cambridge Main Library at 449 Broadway.  Orientation at 12:45 p.m. Ride departs promptly at 1 p.m.

Riders who feel inspired to buy a bow tie for the ride can get a discount at the OoO Tie website by entering the code BOWTIERIDE2012  If you feel lucky, enter the drawing at the end of the ride for a chance to win a free bow tie donated by OoO Tie.

Bow ties are optional but a bike is essential. If you need to rent one, contact Urban Adventours at 617-670-0637. Tell them you’re riding with us and you’ll get an all-day rental for only $20.

We're excited to welcome three new food sponsors to our ride. Hi-Rise Bread Company, home of indulgent treats, will be providing our mid-ride snack. At the finish, Redbones, renowned for its barbecue, and Fuji, an exciting new sushi restaurant in Kendall Square, will be rewarding all riders.

This will be a gorgeous ride at an easy pace on mostly level terrain. No rain date: Heavy rain cancels. Rain announcements will be posted on the website on the morning of the ride.

This ride is led by the Cambridge Bicycle Committee and will be accompanied by Cambridge Police officers on bicycles.
