    Trying to figure out a place to park at a reasonable cost and also a safe place to ride so as not to become road pizza! Maybe along the Charles River...Charles River Parkway?

    I have the Annual Plum Island/ Sandy Point ride coming up on Sunday July 23rd. Safe ride and plenty of parking and good food/ company. Get ready to saddle 'em up and join the posse!

    Hey stick it.....not downtown Boston but just as historic...Minuteman National park in Concord, MA. I rode it a few years ago and took the Minuteman trail to Boston and back. It's a long trail if you want to ride all the way but can make the loop any size you wish. We can stay in Concord area too and ride to Walden Pond and read poetry? Just a suggestion!

    I'm thinking parking in Cambridge somewhere that can fit several vehicles and ride into Boston. How's late August or Early Sept? That's the best time frame right now I can put together. Is this enough "time" for people to plan and make sure they can make it?

    I was in Boston this past weekend. This ride will not be for the weary but knowing this crowd, we all like a little excitement. The 26th may be a good date Stevil. How is the Aug 26th OR Sept the 2nd sound? Either of those two dates?

    I might be able to do the 26th or the 2nd! Riding in a city is always exciting - situational awareness is critical, but not an overwhelming concern; you just have to pay attention.

    The 16th works, let's keep it at that and see who can make it.

    How about if we use Christian A. Herter Park on the intersection of Soldiers Field Road and Everett Street (the park is on the Charles River) as the Meet-Up Place; there is free parking there and we can then go to Fenway Park’s Yawkey Way Ext for lunch and to any other parts of Boston from there.

    Meet-Up Time: should be no later than 10A before the lot gets full???

    How do you guys feel about this?

    Considering the present circumstances in Boston, it’s a good thing this ride wasn’t held today. :confused:

    I was planning on riding the stretch. Its proven to cut through crowds and riots. As far as our meet up location, I was hoping to park further out of Boston and ride in as Sat traffic can really blow. Maybe Cambridge area. Anyone know of an area over there?
