Date: Aug 17th, 2019 | Time: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm | Location: Start at Roxbury Station, 1400 Tremont St, Boston, MA
Route: EPMA JP Bike Tour Route
Join us for another year of green buildings by bike tour! Biking is one of the healthiest, greenest, and best ways to see the city in all its architectural glory. This tour is a unique opportunity to hear insights into sustainable building and development projects as well as community-oriented spaces. This year we are taking the tour through Jamaica Plain, as we hit a diverse spread of sights and scenes.
Jamaica Plain is one of Boston’s most diverse and happening neighborhoods, and this year we’re traveling through sustainable spaces that serve the needs of the community while helping support environmental goals. Bike with us to see how some projects are tackling those issues, and be prepared for a highly informative exploration of community programs and sustainable architecture along our bike tour stops.
Starting Area: 9:30AM Roxbury Station, 1400 Tremont St, Boston, MA (BlueBike Station #C32001, Columbus Ave at Tremont St)
