We are excited to kick things off, and the weather is looking nice (cool and clear) for Friday 7 May any time of the day.

 

CRW Membership REQUIRED. Register here for free to express your interest https://forms.gle/yuJTMzSZ3QXHJUqx5

 

The event will follow a “virtual” (all-day) format to start, and we hope to incorporate some more social elements later on in the season (hopefully soon!). I appreciate that so many of you have requested this feature, and we are looking at the best way to offer this as safety allows.

 

For the time being, you can coordinate with other riders on the CRW Slack or to find a buddy to ride / warm-up with.

 

How this event will work:

Thank you for your enthusiasm, and I look forward to helping coordinate this event throughout the season!

Reason for cancellation: 
Thunder storms are still forecasted for the time of the ride. Wet dirt's not so much fun. We'll reschedule for another date.

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

FRIDAY JUNE 4, 2021 STARTING AT 12:00 NOON. 21 miles of road and, mostly, gravel starting at the Keyes St parking lot in Concord and taking in Mattison Field, Wright Woods, Sandy Pond, the Minuteman Trail, the Reformatory Trail, and Estabrook rd. Bring your gravel or mountain bike and a pump. The dirt roads can be rough and you may want lower tire pressure than what you'd use on the road. Makes a big difference when negotiating the inevitable roots and rocks. Figure about 3+ hours. The faster we go, the loster we get. If the weather forecast deteriorates I may cancel. Stay tuned and check the gravel Slack channel.
