Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway on Saturday, September 29, 2018, when Arlington, Lexington, and Bedford will host a tri-town celebration of the popular rail-trail. The bikeway was completed and dedicated by the three towns during 1992-93, and its success has inspired countless rail-trail and pathway projects in New England and beyond. As we celebrate the past 25 years of Going Places on the Minuteman Bikeway, we look forward to an even better trail that is part of a robust regional bicycle transportation network.
Community celebrations will be held simultaneously along the bikeway in all three towns from 11 am to 3 pm on September 29. Lexington will host its event outside the Visitors' Center, featuring an afternoon party on the lawn complete with a local band, guided bike and walking tours, tables for local interest groups, and refreshments. Local bicycle enthusiasts and bike shops will be on hand, as well, to demonstrate the wide range of bicycles available today, to help with bike maintenance, and to promote support for the growing bicycle community. The Munroe Center for the Arts is organizing special visual art and musical interludes along the length of the bike path in Lexington, as well.
Of course, the best way to celebrate the bikeway's success is to get out and enjoy it by foot, bicycle, skates, or wheelchair! We look forward to celebrating "Minuteman Bikeway Day" with everyone on September 29. Find out more at https://bikeway25.org.
