Before participating, read through this COMPLETELY!
Not tough enough to run a 26 mile marathon, but awesome enough to bike it the night before? Then join the Boston Midnight Marathon Bike Ride, instigated by Greg Hum and BostonSOS! This ride is 'show and go'; no "leaders", just come and ride the route with each other!
May 14-20 is Bike Week in Massachusetts! See what's going on and how you can participate... In the meatime, I thought I'd re-share some of my favorite rides that might help you prepare, get in shape, and get your mind in bike mode. This is, of course, just a starting point...it's all about the adventure, so use this to get started, then blaze your own trail!

One of BostonSOS' earliest spectacles was a surreal "beach celebration" on the subway back in 2008, when dozens of us dressed up in hula skirts, cabanawear and sunscreen, then rode the Blue Line to the North Shore beaches in the middle of March. We slathered on sunscreen, handed out leis, held limbo competitions, basked in the "sun," and otherwise ignored the fact that it was winter in New England...and that we were, umm, yeah, on the subway.
Fast forward to February 2011 - almost exactly three years later - and there we were again: in bathing suits and sunglasses, riding a Wonderland-bound train on a frigid winter morning, towels in hand and visions of the beach in our heads. Only this time, winter hats replaced sunscreen; scarves replaced leis; and on this biting, 37-degree winter day, we were actually going swimming in the freakin' Atlantic Ocean.
