BE+ Bike Tour 2022

South Boston | September 17, 2022

Starting point: UMass Harborwalk Park

We currently plan for a 9:00am start with a 2:00pm estimated completion.

Should we get rained out, we will hold the tour the next day, Sunday, September 18th.

This year, we will be touring from South Boston to the Seaport, following the coastline to explore the area’s emerging environmental design, development, and ecological significance.
Coastal ecosystems are rich resources that provide flood protection, carbon sequestration, and major social/economic benefits. Because of these unique and highly valuable resources, building along the coast requires a careful plan and future-oriented design.
With this tour, we want to highlight some of the City of Boston and local architecture and engineering firms’ efforts to strike a balance between growing development and resiliency, while working to preserve ecosystems and communities alike. Nature needs us, and we need nature.

Event Schedule:

Participants will congregate at the starting point along the UMass Boston Harborwalk (seen on the left) before beginning to follow the route up the coast.
The final stop highlighting resilient projects will be at Fan Pier Park.
Afterward, participants can find lunch and continue hanging out at one of the many places to eat in the area, leave from there, or continue to follow the route on the map that will take them back to the beginning point (seen below on the left).
