Minuteman Bikeway (26 March 2006)

I do the bulk of my riding and training on the Minuteman Bikeway, which runs from the Alewife T Station in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Bedford, Massachusetts.

Here are a few photos from 40-mile ride I did on Sunday, March 26, 2006, from my home in Somerville out the Minuteman Bikeway to Bedford, then on through Concord halfway to Carlisle, where I turned around and came back.
