Overnight Trip

Epic four-day adventure that starts with a climb to the summit of Massachusetts’ highest peak (Mt. Greylock) before coming right back down to cross the length of the state. We’ll keep cycling to the westernmost point — Provincetown, MA to dip in the ocean — enjoying the best ice cream, bakeries, brews, and burritos across the state before catching the last ferry back to Boston, perchance?

The Bike Thursday Ride this week (6/10/21) will start in Bedford.   The route is just under 23 miles, covering some hills throughout Bedford, Concord and Acton with a brief section on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. 

The ride starts at 10:00 AM.  Registration is mandatory and will be limited to 27 participants including 3 leaders.  We will be following the CRW rules of the road.  Riders will be split into 2 or 3 groups depending on the number of riders and pace.  The overall pace of this ride will average between 10 - 12 mph and the groups will stay together.

Please check your calendar before signing up for the ride as you can not cancel through this site.  If you need to cancel please email Barbara Jacobs at nyder.jacobs [at] gmail.com.

Ride Start: 

Meriam's Corner Parking Lot

Lexington Road
Meriam's Corner Concord , MA
Directions: 

From Route 95 Take exit 46B (Old Exit 30B) for Route 2A West. Pass flashing yellow light at Hanscom Drive and continue to second flashing light at fork; stay right onto Lexington Road AKA Battlefield Road. There will be a  sign for parking for Meriam's Corner.

With the lifting of Covid 19 restrictions in the state, drafting and pace line riding is back on the calendar! Further, the Thursday night fitness rides continue to evolve with changing circumstances and new opportunities. In particular, CRW has launched a new ride concept called "Devo" for Development for all riders who want to improve their performance and enjoyment of cycling. This is a natural "fit" for the Thursday night fitness rides. Not all the details are worked out yet so this will be a work in progress at least for the first two or three weeks. I welcome any thoughts you might have: Email kathy.j.horvath [at] gmail.com.   The long route is 28.7 miles for rolling hills through Concord, Acton, Chelmsford and Carlisle. The 26 mile route makes a slight detour into Kate's Corner and picks up the long route arrows on Proctor Road.  Groups are divided into 8-10 riders by average pace which ranges from 14 to 22+ mph. The first Pace Line Clinic is June 10, 2021 for all who want to learn or refresh skills. This Pace Line rides around 13 - 15 mph and we pick up the pace depending on the experience of the participants. There is an optional Alt 23 mile route for casual riding and limited daylight.  Cancellation due to poor weather is posted before 4:30 PM.
