2018 Season

Trinity Bike Club is a great way for parishioners and families to get outside and enjoy some physical activity on a Sunday afternoon at 1:30. Rides will be on local rail trails, often with a stop for ice cream.  Bring bikes in good working order and a helmet.  Ride at own pace. Weather permitting.  

Contact Patricia Kent (617-827-1437; patricia.kent@comcast.net) or John Ahern (978-273-7898; john.ahern@comcast.net) to let us know which ride you are interested.
