Concord’s Trinity Episcopal Church Bike Club
This club was established as a way for parishioners of Trinity
Episcopal Church to get together on a Sunday afternoon for a pleasant
bike ride. Local rail trails are a safe way to ride bikes at your
own pace for any distance you choose. This is a great way for
kids, teenagers, parents, couples and individuals to enjoy a New
England outdoor activity. It is a good way to get to know other
parishioners, have fun, and fulfill some of your required weekly
We usually start the season off with a night in the Parish Hall for
tune-ups. Parishioners Brian and Sally McInnis have been kind to
offer their services to tune-up our bikes. Brian takes time from
his bike shop in Medford, JRA Cycles (Just Riding Along Cycles) to make
sure the gears and tires are ready for our adventures.
Starting in April we’ll meet at 1:30 PM on a Sunday afternoon in a
designated parking lot of one of the rail trails. Don’t forget to
bring your helmets and a bike in good working condition. Inclement
weather cancels the event. You and your family can ride at your own
pace and for any distance you desire. Most of the trails are 10
miles one way. There is usually an ice cream shop along the trail or
nearby so bring some change for a scoop or two. Let Patricia or
John know if you are interested so they can look out for you. Below is
the 2012 season schedule and instructions on how to get to the parking
