Yes, every Sunday morning, the OTHERside Cafe has a leisurely one hour
group ride through Boston. The ride is led by an OTHERside staff
member, and they follow all of the traffic laws. It's really fun, I
go most weeks. Details below:
Riders meet at the cafe Sundays at 8:30 AM for a one-hour bike ride
through Boston, followed by a group breakfast at the cafe. The ride is
$20 per person (ALL proceeds to benefit www.LivableStreets.info and
the creation of bike lanes on Mass Ave.) and includes breakfast, a
free ride t-shirt and one PBR. The food is vegetarian and vegan
friendly, as always! Return riders get $5 off when they wear their
Sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon and The OTHERSIDE Cafe!
