Breakfast for Commuters on Bike to Work Day!

On National Bike to Work Day, May 19, Bike to the Sea and the Mystic River Watershed Association held a commuter breakfast in Malden at the future site of Bike to the Sea’s Bike Kitchen. It was held on a beautiful Friday morning where riders from all around the North Shore region gathered in a 20+ person convoy led by Bike to the Sea’s Executive Director for a bike ride into Boston’s City Hall Plaza. Free BlueBikes rentals were also offered for the morning.

Coffee, Juice, granola bars, apples and bananas were offered to passerby’s. Roughly 50 riders and walkers visited the breakfast table throughout the course of two hours.
