LOWELL, MA — On Saturday, April 14, bicycle riders are encouraged to meet at 10:44am at the Lowell Train Station. (The time the 9:30am train from Boston’s North Station arrives at the Gallagher Terminal). For those who arrive early, they may wish to have breakfast at the historic Owl Diner.
The route visits the Pawtucket and other Lowell canals, the river walk, the Francis Gate, and the Middlesex Canal remnants in Chelmsford. Lunch at Rte 3A mini-mall in North Billerica is followed by a quick visit to the Canal Museum, then on to Boston. It will be a long day of exploration (35 miles end-to-end), but sunset is late.
Riders can board northbound trains at other stations or catch southbound trains to return to Boston. A complete Lowell Line schedule can be downloaded at http://www.keoliscs.com. For changes or updates, visit www.middlesexcanal.org.
Steady rain cancels. Helmets are required.
The leaders of the tour are Bill Kuttner and Dick Bauer.
