My family rode bikes all the time when I was little, but then I stopped riding for a while and am just now getting back into it. It's definitely faster and easier than driving sometimes in Boston.
I didn't get many pictures, being on a bicycle, but here are the few that I captured! You can see more at the event's Facebook page.

|my bike: a modern Schwinn with "retro styling"
|my partner in crime looking fabulous on our picnic blanket--her yellow dress matched her yellow bicycle, so stylish!
|a rather smashing ensemble
|this pin belonged to the wearer's grandmother, and I thought it was a neat touch
|sipping sparkling cider paired with stroopwafels...we know how to picnic.
