Bike to the Sea, Inc. is holding a rum and gin tasting party at Short Path Distillery in Everett on Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 6 p.m to 8 p.m. Tours of the artisanal distillery in Everett's burgeoning "fermentation" district will also be available, as well as free samples of gin and rum.
The event is designed to allow cyclists and bike trail supporters to meet each other and get an update on new developments along the Northern Strand Community Trail. Updates include how the Wynn Casino project will impact the trail in Everett and some good news about Lynn joining the trail building effort.
A limited list of cocktails will be available to purchase at the bar and free snacks. You may want to consider biking to the event with a friend as the distillery is located only a few residential blocks from the end of the Northern Strand Community Trail in Everett.
Bike to the Sea Inc. is looking for new members to help develop this important regional alternative transportation corridor. Volunteers are also needed for upcoming trail projects.
Since 1993 Bike to the Sea has been working to create the Northern Strand Trail: a trail free of cars from the Malden/Everett area of Massachusetts to the beaches in Revere, Lynn and Nahant. The trail is now built from Everett, through Malden, Revere, and Saugus to the Lynn city line.
