Cycling Through History

The Bike Route Vision

We are furthering knowledge about African-American and related history in Massachusetts, and opportunities for increased physical activity, wellness, adventure and local community involvement through bicycling. We are designing a network of bike routes that will guide individuals, families and groups on a multi-media journey through places showing the rich African-American history of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Get Involved - We Need You

We need bicyclists, historians, mappers, public health advocates, fitness enthusiasts, people committed to developing good bike routes, people who are interested in local community African- American history, and tourism boosters. If you fit any of these categories and want to know more, contact us.
