Calendar event imageCycle to the Source is a 33 mile bike tour of the Cambridge Watershed. It is a chance to explore where your water comes from, how it is collected, and what steps are taken to ensure the city has clean drinking water. It will include stops at the upper reservoirs, dams, gatehouses, and the CWD field office. This event is free and open to the public, but for safety reasons is for adults only.

This year, the ride will be on Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 8:30 am to 4 pm. Rain date is Sunday, September 29, 2019.

Register here if you’d like to participate! All you need is a working bike, helmet, lunch, and water. If you would like to join but need a bike, Urban Adventours rents hybrid and road bikes that are suitable for the event. $65 will cover the cost of the bike, helmet, and delivery to Fresh Pond on the morning of the tour. Visit their website for more information.
