September 22nd - Group Ride to the Builders Ball
The Annual New England Builders Ball is the region's only handbuilt bicycle show. Now held in Boston, MA at the Innovation and Design Building (2pm-10pm), this is a great opportunity to see what bespoke frame-builders are doing, and chat with everyone from Boston's Firefly, to locals Chapman Cycles, Pratt Frameworks, and more. The Builder's Ball is not to be missed. This is a 50mi ride, from Providence to Boston—departure time tba, and we are planning to take the train home.
*Anticipated departure time is 9am.*
