CHOOSE YOUR ROUTE
You can choose to ride either the 10-mile family-friendly course or the full 40-mile course along the Emerald Necklace and throughout many of Boston's great neighborhoods. Both routes begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. from the Congress Street Start Line, and feature a CAR-FREE Storrow Drive!
To re-open Storrow Drive in a timely fashion however, any riders not reaching the 10-mile turnaround by 9:30 a.m. will be turned back early. Many other roads along the 40-mile course will be open to vehicular traffic.
Ride Marshals and tech support vehicles, as well as city and state police, will be out along the route to assist you as needed. Additionally, a Ride Safety Hotline will be available this year -- 617-863-0621 -- in case you need to report any technical/medical issues and we will dispatch support.
There is no Rest Stop for the 10-milers, but there are three official Rest Stops along the 40-Mile loop, fueling you up with free drinks and snacks.
Please remember that this is a RIDE, not a race... and will take place rain or shine. All rules of the road apply, so please stay alert, and ride safely and courteously!
