Ashmont Cycles Group Ride, Apr. 6

Ashmont Cycles is starting up a weekly group ride! The first ride of the season will be Wednesday, April 6th, at 6:00 p.m. Meet in front of the shop (Peabody Square, next to the Ashmont Grill).

Everyone is welcome! The rides will head south into the Blue Hills. There is no obligation as to how far or how fast you have to ride. The goal is to encourage people to take advantage of the very good riding in this area, and to meet new people.

The days are getting longer, but riders are advised to ride with a light during these early spring evenings. Contact the shop if you have any questions. ( or 617-282-6552).

"The Missing Link": Planning the Dorchester Coast Trail

Dorchester Coast PlanBy filling out a quick survey, you can help plan The Dorchester Coast Trail, also known as "The Missing Link" between the Greenway in Port Norfolk and the Harborwalk at UMass Boston.  The trail is currently one of Dot Bike's high-priority advocacy projects, as this connection would link two of the already great bike routes that follow much of the Dorchester Coast creating a fabulous and safe off road path along Dorchester Bay and beyond.

This January a group of graduate students in the Tufts University Urban and Environmental Planning program started a research project sponsored by the DCR to explore options and issues regarding creating this crucial link.  The result of this project will include materials that will be useful to move forward on the next steps in the process. You can help DotBike, Tufts UEP, and your communtiy by completing a short online survey available here:



DotBike is a community of cyclists who promote increased awareness, opportunity, and safety for bicycling in Dorchester through advocacy and bicycling events. We strive to encourage and support commuter, recreational, sport and working cyclists in Dorchester.
