In 1989 The Back Bay Midnight Pedalers started making an annual tour of historic and architectural sites in the Boston area. The ride usually occurs in mid-to-late August, beginning just before midnight on a Saturday night and running until a little after sunrise on Sunday. The ride route and length varies, but is usually around 30 miles.

Pictures from the 2009 ride will be up soon...who am I kidding, they'll be up eventually, but not soon.
2010 pix? No kidding I only just dumped them off of the camera card in July in 2012. I'm still deluding myself into thinking I'll post them eventually.
I missed the 2012 ride, so there definately won't be pictured of this one.
2014, no Pictures
2015, There are some pictures on my phone, maybe I'll upload them someday.
