Celebrate our Wild and Scenic Rivers on a 30 mile (~3 hours) bike ride with OARS and the Nashoba Valley Pedalers.

The ride will include multiple river crossings of the Assabet, Concord and Sudbury rivers, with occasional stops for re-grouping and brief descriptions of the rivers we're celebrating.
