Mattapan on Wheels 2023
The Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition Vigorous Youth invites you to our 13th Mattapan on Wheels (MoW) Bike-a-thon: The Musical Flavors!
Mattapan is home to many individuals from west and east Caribbean countries hailing from Haiti, Jamaica, Barbados, Dominican Republic, and so much more. Two of the ways our community expresses the richness and uniqueness of our culture is through music and food.
Ride with Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition (MFFC) as we take you through the musical flavors of Mattapan. Bring your flag and join one of many bike routes while listening to the energetic sounds of our heritage that will guarantee to get your body moving while riding. If you don’t have a flag, we will have some available.
We can’t forget about the young people who make up a large part of Mattapan. Enjoy a youth curated playlist complete with a vibe that will make you want to stop riding your bike and just tic tok your way to the destination.
At the end of the bike ride, experience delicious food from local food trucks that will tantalize your taste buds.
We promise you that you don’t want to miss this!
