Literary Bike Tour of Boston

We were all up in arms about Bike Week last year, interviewing everybody and their mother in local bikes. This year, we put the brakes on the interviews, since we found some super cool events for you to attend. This Saturday, try a literary tour of Cambridge.

Literary Cambridge by Bike is a 10-mile ride that will take you past the former homes of luminaries like e.e. cummings and Valdimir Nabokov (sadly, no Aleksandar Hemon) in Cambridge. Arrive at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School plaza between Broadway and Cambridge streets by 10:15 am for a 10:30 am departure this Saturday, May 16. The ride will end at Riverside Press Park on Memorial Drive with free refreshments.
It's probably a little late to get very far, but you can start to tackle the extensive (but certainly incomplete) reading list of books with Cambridge settings that the ride will cover. Have more questions? Check the FAQ.
