Charles River bike ride via train on 7/20

While this is not an official RIBike event, it might be more fun to go with a group of RI bicyclists to ride the Charles River bike paths in Boston, they are on both sides of the river. Since many of us bicyclists also like trains, my plan on Tuesday, July 20 is to take the MBTA commuter train that leaves Providence Station at 9:43am. This is the earliest train that allows bikes aboard (no extra charge for them) The Back Bay station in the Copley Square area is just few blocks from the river and the bike path.

I envision a possibility of lunch in Harvard Square, and coming back to Copley by 6pm when the beautiful main public library there has a (free) tour of its architectural and art features, and at the same time, the library is also featuing a film about Hank Aaron.

The trains back to Providence leave Back Bay at 6:55pm and at 8:15pm. I encourage anyone wishing to join me to call me at 353-6536. Rain cancels it for me.
