If you bike, you gotta do this ride. It’s so cool and so unique it would be a shame to miss. It’s at midnight but so what. There is no traffic and lots of cops and workers on the sidelines prepping the route for the marathon making this a very safe ride. I’ll be there early after leaving people at Logan.
I’ll be going early making a stop at Logan before hand. If you want to meet up with me, find me at South Station. There will be a lot of people but not so many we can’t find each other.
Be sure to register NOW if you want your bike transported to Hopkington. It’s thirty bucks. There is also a pancake breakfast for $15 and the commuter rail to Southbough to meet your bike is about $6.
The Midnight Marathon Bike Ride is back for 2015!
This year’s Midnight Marathon ride will be just like last year’s, meaning
*It’s going to be awesome, but just like always, this ride is on open public roads and is NOT supported, so you’re responsible for bringing friends, dressing appropriately, your own safety. If you get a flat, you’ll need to be able to fix it on your own.
*We’re organizing a “Truck ‘n Train” option for you, meaning you purchase a ticket from us to transport your bike on a moving truck from South Station to Southborough, and you take the Commuter Rail to Southborough to pick up your bike (which means you also purchase a commuter rail ticket separately) Tickets for “Truck n’ Train” are available here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/midnight-marathon-truck-n-train-2015-tickets-16468641149
Not to mention, any leftover proceeds will go to a local bike organization of your choice!
*There will be a PANCAKE BREAKFAST charity fundraiser organized independently of us by our friends at Boston Common Coffee Company. Trust us, you’ll want pancakes after the ride. Tickets are LIMITED, buy tickets for the breakfast here..It helps a great deal to know how many people are coming for this, so we ask you to please buy tickets BEFORE WEDNESDAY, 4/15 if you know you’re in for some sweet, sweet, post-ride pancakes: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2015-midnight-marathon-ride-pancake-breakfast-tickets-16434064730
*VOLUNTEERS: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to help with various things, including loading bikes in and out of trucks, flagging people down at tricky train track crossing on dark roads, providing unofficial ad-hoc support, AND facilitating a delicious pancake breakfast.
