On Wednesday, May 18, a Bay State Bike Week Commuter Breakfast was held from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. with massRIDES for commuters who work in the downtown area. Mayor Domenic J. Sarno was at Court Square to greet riders and pass out water, granola bars, orange juice and bike safety gear such as reflective stickers and battery powered lights.
Mayor Sarno commented, “This is a great, healthy way not only to get to work, but to keep fit too.”
