Founded in 1993, Bike to the Sea, Inc. (B2C) is a charitable, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that promotes bicycling and bicycle safety in the Malden area and to creat a multi-use path from Everett (through Malden, Revere and Saugus) to Lynn.
B2C promotes the development of a bicycle and pedestrian trail from the Malden area to the beaches of Lynn and Revere. Comprised of over 100 members, B2C holds regular social and pleasure rides to destinations such as Revere Beach, Nahant and Marblehead Neck. The largest ride of the year is "Bike to the Sea" held in June. Over 100 families and friends join us for a ride to the beach escorted by local bicycle police. Funds raised at B2C Day have been donated to develop a prelimiary design and cost estimate for the bicycle trail and an aerial survey. B2C volunteers regularly participate in local bicycle fairs helb by the schools, Junior Police and the Kiwanis. Members also promote safer streets for bicyclists, better parking at MBTA stations and bicycle commuting to Boston. B2C works with MassBike, Rails to Trails and East Coast Greenway.
