On Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 12:30-4:15 p.m., Bike Newton is sponsoring a city-wide NewtonSERVES community service project with the goal of improving off-road bike paths in Newton. In order to ensure the enjoyment and safety of walkers and bikers, basic clearing of debris will be accompanied by pruning and thinning of trailside growth, as well as improvement of trail surface conditions through smoothing, redistribution of crushed rock, and marking of hazards. Specific trails to be maintained include: 1) the paved
Charles Dudley White path along the Charles River from North St. to California St., 2) the unpaved path from Commonwealth Ave to Wabasso Road in Auburndale Park, and 3) the unpaved trail from Nahanton St. to the West Roxbury border along the Charles River. At 3:30 p.m., all volunteers are invited to travel by bicycle to the War Memorial Auditorium Triangle behind Newton City Hall for a group photo and Bike Newton Rally, with live music, where NewtonSERVES will be providing ice cream.
You don't need to live in Newton to be part of this effort - we need and appreciate all the help we can get! To participate, please visit www.newtoncommunitypride.org/NewtonSERVES after April 1 and register for the
“Bike Path Upkeep/Upgrade” project. Direct specific questions or your suggestions for off-road bike paths in Newton that would benefit from maintenance or upgrading to Steve Heinrichs, Bike Newton Director of
Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
