About the event

Join MassBike and coalition partners on Sunday, June 9, 2024, for the third annual Kittie Knox Ride! This community bike ride around Boston, Cambridge, Watertown, and Waltham features the history of Katherine “Kittie” Knox, a bi-racial woman cyclist and barrier-breaker in the 1890s.

 

Riders will learn about Kittie as a bicycling pioneer and we’ll ride and reflect on issues we’re facing today in terms of racial and gender representation in bicycling and advocacy. A historical site summary will be provided for this ride by NECCD (New England Cycling Coalition for Diversity).

 

The rain date for this event is Saturday, June 15, 2024. 

Routes

There are two routes for the Kittie Knox Ride. While this ride will be guided, we ask participants to download the GPS file or print cue cards in advance.
15-Mile Kittie Knox Ride Route

35-Mile Kittie Knox Ride Route

Support the Kittie Knox Plays

This is a free event, but donations to The Kittie Knox Plays are encouraged. We're working with Plays in Place to bring Kittie's story to life in a series of one-act plays by playwrights Patrick Gabridge, Claire Gardner, and Kirsten Greenidge, creating a vehicle for multi-racial school, college, and community theater groups, along with bicycling clubs, to stage theatrical performances that reflect on the history of race and gender around the topic of bicycling. The Kittie Knox Ride will enable us to continue our fundraising campaign for this effort.

 

Volunteer
