In Arlington in 2000, the bikeway was dedicated to Donald Marquis, who served 34 years as Town Manager and was also intrumental in the bikeway's completion.

Twenty years in planning, the Minuteman Bikeway might still be a dream if not for the tireless efforts of two community advocates: Tom Fortmann of Lexington and Alan McClennen, Jr., of Arlington.

Tom and Alan, we thank you for making your dreams of a bikeway come true. On the 10th anniversary of the Minuteman Bikeway's completion, we gratefully dedicate this website (and the companion brochure) to you.

We also applaud the efforts of Cathy Buckley Lewis at Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) for her efforts in the design and construction of the Minuteman Bikeway.

Special Thanks

Special thanks are due to Jack Johnson, cofounder of the Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee, creator of this site and strong bicycle advocate in the Boston area and beyond. He is an important role model for many of us.
