I took an early morning ride from East Arlington to Bedford this morning. The weather was beautiful. I took the Minuteman outbound (fairly quiet), but to avoid the increasing activity in Lexington and Arlington centers on the way back, I switched to Bedford St where it crosses the bike path and followed that to Mass Ave and then home. As others have started, there's a lot less congestion on the streets than the bike path.

The flowering trees at the Bedford Depot are near peak and look great:


Do you remember when those trees were too small to provide any shade? (it wasn't that long ago!)
I kept my distance from my fellow riders.

The Lexington Green was unnaturally quiet:




I'm glad I went out early, I'm guessing the Minuteman would later have been uncomfortably busy in these scary times.

I need to try Rod's loop that goes under 128 via Middle and Lincoln Streets. I had not been that way in many years and had forgotten about that route.
