We’re trying to make the most of our last few days of summer, so yesterday we hit the road for a cycling adventure out to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. deCordova is only 15 miles from Cambridge, which makes it a nice day trip. As an added bonus, cyclists get into the park for free!
As someone who currently rides my bike about three times per year, I found the route to be enjoyable and not too challenging. We started by riding across Cambridge to the Alewife T Station, where we were able to hop onto the Minuteman Bikeway. We then took the path out to Lexington, where we stopped for breakfast. After fueling up, we rode out of town towards Lincoln and out to deCordova. There were some decent sized hills between Lexington and deCordorva, but nothing that caused me to get into my lowest granny gear 🙂
deCordova turned out to be an interesting place. The park was full of modern art sculptures, and the museum currently has an exhibit by Tony Feher of everyday objects turned into quirky pieces of art. I might be missing the point, but at least that’s how I would describe the exhibit.
Here are a few of the highlights from Sculpture Park:
