We had a great day, with more sun than we expected for the 15 cyclists
who did this ride. We got a little lost in Chelsea, but Mark Warren's
knowledge of East Boston made this one of the most educational of the
six rides we've done to Deer Island. Larry, an East Boston activist,
also helped us find the long-lost Winthrop Greenway, which we rode for
a couple of hundred yards for a more pleasant experience that Washington
St. Unhappily, we had a total of four flat tires, the
first when Doug's front rim split in Roslindale at the ride's pre-start,
the second a hundred yards from the start in Charlestown, the third as
we were leaving Belle Isle Marsh, and the fourth on John Allen's bike
at the lunch stop. Luckily, our group was small enough to wait for
repairs--well, Doug had to walk his bike a half-mile home and swap
wheels while Ron waited in Roslindale Square--and there were many hands
to make quick work of patching the tubes.
