Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway on Saturday, September 29, 2018, when Arlington, Lexington, and Bedford will host a tri-town celebration of the popular rail-trail. The bikeway was completed and dedicated by the three towns during 1992-93, and its success has inspired countless rail-trail and pathway projects in New England and beyond. As we celebrate the past 25 years of Going Places on the Minuteman Bikeway, we look forward to an even better trail that is part of a robust regional bicycle transportation network.
Community celebrations will be held simultaneously along the bikeway in all three towns from 11 am to 3 pm on September 29. You are welcome to visit as many activities as you like in Arlington Center (Whittemore Park), Lexington Center (Visitors' Center lawn), and Bedford (near the Bikeway Source), as well as along the bikeway. Each location will feature conversations with local bicycle enthusiasts and bikeway representatives, information about current and future bicycling initiatives, and light refreshments. Planning is underway for special visual art and musical interludes along the path.
