On Saturday morning, Breakstone, White & Gluck was pleased to join the cyclists who came out for the 11th Annual Mattapan on Wheels Bike-a-Thon.
Our law firm gave away helmets to cyclists of all ages who took the ride as part of our Project KidSafe campaign to protect against head injuries. Attorney Reza Breakstone was out fitting the helmets at our Project KidSafe tent.
Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition (MFFC) and the Vigorous Youth host the popular event each year and with Mother Nature on their side, there was a strong turnout, with 106 cyclists participating.
The goal of the Mattapan on Wheels event is to have fun and encourage cycling. Cyclists are given all the tools they need to participate. They can sign up to borrow a bike from the Blue Bikes rideshare or Boston Bikes, a City of Boston program.
Breakstone, White & Gluck also donates helmets, so this is truly an event open to anyone who wants to come out and try cycling in this part of the city or along the Lower Neponset River Trail.
Participants had their choice of bike routes. The 8-mile family ride traveled out to Tenean Beach in Dorchester. The 10-mile intermediate ride encouraged both sightseeing and riding on city roads. Cyclists were introduced to the new protected bike lanes along Cummings Highway and American Legion Highway.
The experienced ride was a scenic 13-mile route to Wollaston Beach in Quincy.
