10/13: Electric Cars, Electric Bikes and Rail Trail Festival

Curious about electric cars and bikes? Want to learn more about the new and growing Rail Trai, and its history? On October 13, let us take you for a ride, a spin and a walk!

Facebook event page: here.

Electric Cars. Explore the great variety of electric cars that are on the market today, talk to owners about their experiences (no sales pitches!), learn about rebates, deals and discounts on purchases and leases, and go for a ride. Learn about the Stop & Shop chargers, and about the ones you can install at home. Lear about switching to green electricity to make your ride 100% pollution-free and renewable!

Electric Bikes. Check out an assortment of electric bikes and take them for a spin. Ride your bike over for a free safety check!

Rail Trail. The Friends of the Rail Trail will be there to tell you about the newly finished Wayland Trail, some great little-known destinations, current plans to extend the Trail east and west, and a demo of a free Rail Trail app.

A Piece of History. Take a walk along the Trail. From the Town Center to Tower Hill, guides from the Wayland Museum & Historical Society and the Historical Commission will show you the history of the Rail.

Meet the groups and organizations working on making our transport and commutes greener and cleaner!

Several lunch options.
