Oct. 20: Biking and Walking Tour of Proposed Community Path Extension
Tour Date: Saturday, 10/20 from 1:30 to 4:00 pm.
Rain Date: Sunday 10/21, same time.
Meet at East Street and North Point Boulevard, Cambridge (across the street from Lechmere Station).
We'll make our way to Cedar Street in Somerville from there.
The Friends of the Community Path will be hosting this fun tour to tell you about our progress and challenges on this great project! Our tour is FREE and open to the public (though we will accept donations if your force them upon us). Please invite your friends, politicians, activists, etc. from here and from other towns, as the CPX is a regional project, which will connect the Minuteman and Charles River Path networks, along the future Green Line extension.
The Friends of the Community Path will lead 2 groups assembling in the same place - A Bicycling Tour and also a Walking Tour.
The Community Path extension (CPX) is about 2 miles as-the-crow flies, but our tour route will be more like 3 miles as-the-people-go because we need cannot travel directly along the GLX rail corridor, where the CPX will (eventually) be. Much of the route is ADA accessible, though unfortunately, not all sections (especially by Gilman Square), though we could meet up anyone who needs to at the next section.
