Wednesday - Fearless Leader Ride in Lincoln at De Cordova

Fearless Leader Ride - Wednesday, May 4 - Lincoln

Darlene will be leading a brand new ride, starting at DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln. The first Wednesday of each month is free. We will ride and then have time to walk the grounds and enjoy the museum.

This beautiful ride passes by farm lands, old homes, Walden Pond, and Gropius house. There are a few moderate hills and short stretches on busy roads. We will cross Rte 2 twice and cross several railroad crossings. Will that make us cross? The museum has a cafe. The weather does not look promising for a picnic, but feel free to BYOL.T he grounds and oudoor sculptures are wonderful.

NOTE the 10AM start time.

We would appreciate knowing if you are joining us.  Please RSVP YES only.
