We’ll also enjoy hot cocoa and cookies at Harvard Square, courtesy of the Harvard Square Business Association.The ride also makes an optional warm-up stop at the Menotomy Grill & Tavern, just a mile from the ride's end. Come enjoy some free appetizers and more.

Adult riders are encouraged to give a $25 suggested donation for the ride; the beneficiary is Horizons for Homeless Children.
