Looking for Riding Partner in Cambridge/Somerville

Hello-

I just moved to Somerville from Los Angeles and I am looking for a riding partner. I do not have a car, so ideally all rides would originate pretty close to Somerville. I would like to do rides ranging in distance from 15-40 miles, depending on the amount of time available. I usually average around 13-15 mph in the flats, but I would like to get faster. I really like climbing hills. Thanks!

Hi Becky,

I live in Cambridge and tend to ride 4 to 5 times a week. Most nights after work, I do the Minuteman bike path which is about 11 miles (one way) starting at the Alewife T stop (Cambridge) and ending in Bedford, MA. On weekends I tend to do a longer ride again involving the Minuteman, but extending it to include Concord, Lincoln, Carlisle, and other surrounding areas. Let me know if you would be interested in meeting up sometime for a ride.

Jason

Hello Jason-

I would love to meet up for a ride. Sounds excellent. And I am pretty close to the Minuteman path. I live just off Porter square. I am new to this site, so I am not sure what would be the best way to exchange contact information or if you just want to meet up to go for a ride. This week, I think Thursday or Friday evenings would probably be best for me. Or anytime over the weekend. Please let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Becky

If you guys do come out the Concord way, let me know and I would love to ride with you. I just relocated from RI and am looking for riding buddies...

Thanks, Emily

Hey Bruce!

Welcome to the forums, what took you so long?!

Did I read your post correctly? You are coming up here to ride soon?! Excellent. You just let me know when and I will rearrange my schedule!

Toodles, Emily
