What is Bike Friday?

Bike Fridays are our way of saying, “Thanks for riding your bike today.” We think it’s important to celebrate everyone who rides in Boston, and we want to make it easier for new riders to start commuting. On one Friday a month throughout the summer, we host a big party for cyclists at City Hall, and we make it easy for you to get here by bike.

On Bike Friday, you can join a bike commuter convoy from one of dozens of locations throughout the Boston metro area. Safe guided convoys with experienced ride leaders will follow a fixed schedule and route and finish together at City Hall Plaza in Boston. Because you rode your bike, you’ll get a free breakfast and coffee courtesy of Boloco, set to music amid an expo at City Hall Plaza. Join a convoy, or just show up for the fun at City Hall Plaza.

Registration is free and encouraged so we know to expect you.

Breakfast is only for cyclists, so please be prepared to show us your bike, helmet, Hubway key, or spandex.

General Schedule:

6:45 AM Meet with convoy.
7:00 AM Convoys depart (except from Needham).
7:30 — 8:30 AM Convoys finish at City Hall Plaza.

Volunteers

We need a big team of volunteers for these events, and it is so fun to participate. You can volunteer as a ride leader or as a host at City Hall Plaza. See our Bike Fridays volunteers page for more information.

In 2012, Boston surpassed 60 miles of bike lane. This is up from 60 yards in 2007. We continue to add 10–20 miles per year. Check out the Bike Network Plan to see our plans for the future.
