Join us Tuesday, April 23rd for Free Harpoon Beer and tasty Boloco nibbles and to help send off Tim Johnson’s Ride on Washington as they set off the following day from Boston's City Hall Plaza to ride to Washington DC with the goal to raise awareness and $100,000 for People For Bikes, a national non-profit that works to improve bicycling facilities, opportunities, and programs nationwide.
Entering its third year this ride is no small feat. While several riders will join for a day or two, the long haul riders will ride more than 500 miles in just five days. From Boston, the riders stop in Hartford, New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore before finishing in Washington, DC on Sunday, April 28.
Please join us for a fun evening of celebration and discussion at Harpoon Brewery in Boston, light fare will be provided and beer sampling complementary. $5 donation please.
