Moved to Thursday to avoid Wednesday rain.  Sorry for any confusion

Take advantage of WFH!  Sneak out and go on this 14-16 mph, leaderless, mid-day ride through Lincoln and Concord. Lots of history and culture! Start at the Lexington Battle Green, see the Walter Gropius House, ride past the DeCordova Museum, zip by Walden Pond. First part is a little hilly, then there's a long flat part where we can stretch our legs a bit, finishing with the Grove Street Hill.
