2016 Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon

On Sunday, my son Peter & I rode the ten mile route in the Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon, raising $463 in donations for all the great work done by Bikes Not Bombs!  Even though the ride is over, you can still sponsor us (I think the donor page is active until December!).

Rain delayed this year’s ride from June 5th to June 19th, so I got to spend a gorgeous Father’s Day with my son biking around Boston and Brookline.  Last year’s ride was marred a bit by Peter’s bike being too small, so we got him a new bike last summer and it proved to be up to the task.  This year’s ride almost seemed to go by too fast, but it was worth it when we were coasting down the hill by the Arboretum and Peter exclaimed “This is so much fun!”  Next year, Peter wants to do the thirty mile ride and I think he will be up to it!

Thanks to everyone who sponsored us and the companies who supported today’s event and all the volunteers who made it a perfect day!

Ready to ride!
