    nerdo:NOT REVERE BEACH. Go to Nantasket Beach instead: 20 miles each way means you get a great ride both ways and a cool dip in the middle. If you want something closer, try Matthews Beach in Southie. Just as dirty as Revere Beach, not as difficult to get to.

    EDIT: And if you don't feel like riding both ways, there's a commuter rail stop pretty close by. Or you can take the Red Line to Quincy and ride the rest of the way. Etc, etc.


    Don't get me wrong, I love Nantasket, and it's worth the trip... but I've come to love Revere Beach as well. Different, but not bad.

    Revere Beach: outside of following Sean's suggestion and taking the Blue Line, you could take 99 from Sullivan Square, continuing on 99 after the rotary, bear right onto Lynn Street, right on Rte 60, and either continue on Rte 60 or turn onto Revere Street and taking that over to the beach. Sure, you could just take Rte 16 from the rotary on 99, but 16 isn't very pleasant (fast narrow heavily-trafficed multilane road).

    Go to Marblehead, it's got gorgeous beaches with gorgeous houses and really really nice boardwalk areas.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Can't say I've been to their beaches, but he makes a good point... you can start going the way I suggested on Lynn Street but stay on it (will change names when you pass into Saugus) until it runs into Lincoln St/Ave in Saugus... if you stay on that it'll bring you into Lynn where you can work your way over to Lynn Ctr and then go up the coast from Lynn beach, it's a nice ride from there and Marblehead in general is pretty awesome.

    My parents lived in Marblehead before I was born, my father wanted to stay but my mother won out.

    Kind of...I knew we might end up meeting, but not for so long. I was watching the clock in despair the whole time. It actually ended up being really useful though, which was why I didn't interrupt and try to bounce.

    Anyway, it cooled way down and I got a good ride in up Concord and down Trapelo with intervals so I feel better. But alas, I remain a Cat 5 for another week.I am the reason your son is crying.

    Tomorrow morning ride to walden pond leaves from the Dunks at JFK St in Harv Sq promptly at 9:30. I'm going with a friend, road ride, medium pace. We'd prefer to maintain a steady pace en route to the pond, hang/swim/snack then ride home at a more leisurely pace. ~30m RT
    I don't care if you post and say you'll be there etc etc, talk is cheap. be there before 9:30 and let's beat the heat!

    A second Walden Pond ride for swimz and other assorted funs (for those who weren't willing to wake up with Tyler) is meeting at Darwin's at 3:30pm. Planned route is through Waltham, avoiding the hills of Trapelo Road and avoiding the offroad of Reformatory Branch Trail. Planned pace is Social Wednesday/Team Slow Bike/as slow as the slowest person feels like going.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    I was not aware, still pretty new to the area. But I figured that out.
  32.  
    Mem Drive is a bad place to book-it on. Kids on big wheels, ppl that have no concept of keeping a line, etc. Personally, I'd feel safer going full tilt lane splitting down mass ave at rush hour than I would going fast on Mem Drive. Cars are much more predictable than small children.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.
