Governor Charlie Baker has issued a Governor’s Citation to the Town of Bedford on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway. He recognized our ‘vision in planning, advocating, creating and maintaining the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway – a treasured resource providing healthy, clean transportation and recreation.”  It’s great to have the Minuteman top of mind for Governor Baker as Bedford waits for funding for the Minuteman extension to the Concord line.  Stop by the Friends of the Minuteman booth at the Anniversary Celebration to see drawings and status of the extension.

Bedford’s festivities begin at the Bikeway Source (across South Road from Depot Park) at 11 am on Saturday, September 29, with special events along the trail as it wends its way to Arlington.
