Our long, hot summer is finally shifting into fall gear. In the Boston area, the maple trees are turning shades of red, orange and yellow.
Even though the leaves are changing color, you can still BE GREEN! You can easily make your autumn tradition more eco-friendly by leaf-peeping from your bicycle. The month of October brings the Fall Foliage Classic, a week-long (Oct. 9 to Oct. 16), 314-mile (505-kilometer) bike tour through Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. You’ll start off pedaling a manageable 32 miles (51 kilometers) through coastal fishing villages the first day, and by the end you’ll be logging 68-mile (109-kilometer) days through communities that look like they’re right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
