Ride image: 

18 miles around Concord Center, some road but mostly on dirt. Doable in 2 hours but, if time runs short, the last loop can be eliminated saving 45 minutes.
Bring your gravel or mountain bikes. Non techy and a good intro to riding in the local woods if you haven't done it before.

Notes: 

ATTENTION!
Download the latest, revised route. More dirt, less road, and a bit less distance.

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.
