The Mighty Squirrel Ride

Have you been looking for a long, hard/hilly ride that leaves early on a weekend morning and gets you home by lunch? The Mighty Squirrel is for you. This metric century takes you from Waltham out to the Harvard hills and back and is targeted at experienced riders who can maintain an average pace of 15/16, or 18/19 mph.

 

We will follow the CRW COVID group rides recommendation: https://www.crw.org/content/crw-covid-19-riding-rules



We have four ride leaders and during COVID we are limiting the group to 10 riders per leader, maximum 40 riders.

 

This is a tempo ride and we’ll go as a group, breaking into packs of up to 10 riders depending on the number of people who show up. Navigation is via GPS. The ride leader may hold the group while riders fix small mechanicals.

 

We suggest you bring your favorite gels, bars, drinks for the ride. We will make one brief stop at the parking area of Haskell Field at mile 17.8/KM 28.7 and then a longer rest stop at the Harvard General Store for a hot beverage and snack.

 

WE RETURNED TO THE USUAL 7:30AM STARTING TIME FROM APRIL ON!

 

Please plan to be there 10-15 minutes prior to the start.

 

Please check for weather cancelations day prior to the ride by 8PM.

 

We began using a new route in April - PLEASE MAKE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE UPDATED ROUTE TO YOUR GPS DEVICE!

 

This is a CRW-Devo ride. Participants will be able to accumulate elevation towards the Climbing Challenge: https://www.strava.com/clubs/155/posts/15031207

Ride Start: 

Municipal Parking Lot-Concord-Keyes Rd

150 Keyes Rd
Concord , MA
Directions: 

Rt. 128/95 to Exit 29, Rt. 2 West. Go 4.6 mi., look for the Rt. 126 sign, and turn right at that intersection onto Walden Street. Bear right at the fork. At 1.2 mi. in Concord Center make a left onto Main St. and a right into the town parking lot. The Visitor Center is at the south end of the parking lot. By commuter rail and bicycle: From the Concord station, head north on Sudbury Road, which merges into Main Street, then take the first left onto Keyes Rd -- about 1 mi. Train schedule is here: https://mbta.com/schedules/CR-Fitchburg/timetable

The shortest route from Concord Center to Harvard on the usual roads. You get to stand on your pedals at mile 15.5 on Old Schoolhouse Rd.
Bring a mask and wear it in the parking lot and when rational judgement indicates.
Harvard General Store may be open but don't count on it. Which means rest rooms may have to be improvised.
