The 22d annual Bike to the Sea Day ride is scheduled for Sunday, June 1 at 9 a.m. Registration is available online or participants can register the day of the ride starting at 8:30 a.m.

Both rides end at the Dockside Restaurant on Centre Street in Malden and include lunch. The routes include traveling  on newly paved sections of the trail in Everett and Malden but also include some on-street bike riding. Police escorts control traffic at major intersections. Some of the trail is unpaved so wider tires are recommended.

  • Individuals: $15 ($20 day of the ride), includes lunch and a T-shirt.
  • Families: $25 ($30 day of the ride), includes lunch for four and two T-shirts.

Revere Trail Preview and Cleanup Set For April 12

A view of the Rumney Marsh

The Northern Strand Community Trail will run along side of the Rumney Marsh in Revere.

A spring cleanup and preview of the Revere portion of the trail will be held on April 12, 2014. This one-mile section of the Northern Strand Community Trail skirts the edge of Rumney Marsh in Revere. It has spectacular views out over a 2,600 acre salt marsh rarely seen by Bostonians or even locals of Revere and Malden.

Over the spring and summer of 2014 Bike to the Sea Inc. will be working with the city of Revere and Iron Horse Preservation Society, the contractor, to build a gravel trail linking Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus into a seven mile long continuous trail.

To join the cleanup from Malden, park in the public lot in Linden Square and walk east heading towards Route 1.  Look for “Trail Clean Up” signs. In Revere, park on Blodgett Street parallel to Route 1, across from Linden Square and Malden Masonry Supply. The cleanup will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Tools and trash bags will be provided, as well as a light lunch. For more information, contact Clay Larsen at (617) 908-1022 or email clarsen@groundworklawrence.org.
