CRW-Devo Western Mass attack will be EPIC

 

If you have ever ridden your road bike in that wonderful area, you know what we are up to. Beautiful scenery, rivers, swimming holes and mountains. Lots of them.

 

The fierce leader of the Climbing Challenge was asked to put together a "nice" route for us and it didn't disapoint. 10,000+ ft of elevation will be up for grabs.

 

We will start off in Charlemont from the Regional School, and ride over classic Western Mass hills like Kingsley Hill/Tilda all the way to the Western Summit, Monroe Hill, Whitcomb Hill to the Eastern Summit, Black Brook to Savoy and then finishing off climbing up to Heath two different ways. We will be doing many loops so if your appetite fades after the first 5 or 7K ft, you can make a strategic turn.

 

This is high riding season folks, we will all be as fit as we will ever get in this year so why not spend some of that over the nicely paved roads of Rowe, Monroe, Florida, Hawley, Savoy, and other towns?  Join us for this imperial century ride across several of Pamela's (and soon to be yours) favorite hills in the area.

 

We are going to leave at 9:00 AM, aiming at completing the loop keeping an average of 14-16mph. There will be rest tops along the way on convenience stores. Bring enough food though. Riders who are fitter are welcome to ride in the front but regouping at the top of the steeper hills - there will be plenty - and at the designated rest stops.

 

EXCLUSIVE BONUS: As we envision the weather to be quite hot that day, what about a dip in a pristine watering hole along the way? We got you covered!

 

This is a CRW-Devo ride. The elevation can be logged in the Climbing challenge. Use this Google Form: https://forms.gle/u36njxiXpeztyxKj9

 

We will be observing CRW's COVID regulation. Please use the registration form in this page to take part in this ride!

 

Should you have any questions, send me a note!

 

Special thanks to Pamela Blalock for tracing the route! You can personally "thank her" after the ride (LOL)

 

Hope to see you there.

President's Ride Redux and BBQ

Ride Start: 

Bedford Depot Park

120 South Rd
Bedford , MA
Directions: 

Bedford DepotFrom the west, turn right from Route 4-225 onto South Road; from the east, turn left from Route 4-225 onto Loomis Street. Bedford Depot Park is at the end of the Minuteman Bikeway. 

CRW (Past) President Larry Kernan and Mary Kernan are thrilled to invite you to join them for one of their favorite cycling routes followed by a lunchtime BBQ at their home.

 

This long ride (39 miles)) starts in Bedford with a climb up Page Road. We’ll wind through Lexington and into Lincoln with an even better climb up Bedford Road. The ride hits some of the prettiest back roads through Wayland and Sudbury with plenty of shade and new pavement.  The route includes two of Larry's favorite roads -- Pelham Island Road and Water Row. You can take a break at Verrill Farm at mile 28, but you’ll want to save your appetite. 

 

The short ride (31 miles) mercifully eliminates the early climb up Page Road and skips a swing around Pelham Island Road but still hits many of the best parts of the ride. 

 

There is a restroom available at the ride start, behind the Bedford Depot. Parking for the ride is either at the Bedford Depot or across the street, behind Bikeway Source (a great local bike shop!). The ride will start behind Bikeway Source.

 

We'll have several led groups. Check this page often as we recruit leaders and post the speeds for the groups.

- The 31 mile ride will have a no drop ride with a leader and sweep, average of 12 - 13 mph.

 

After the ride, we'll be moving to the home of Larry and Mary, about 2 miles away. You can either load your bike and drive over or feel free to ride. The BBQ will include hamburgers (with a veggie option) and all the fixings as well as dessert and some great beverages. We ask that those attending the BBQ be CRW members and fully vaccinated. Not yet a CRW member? Come on! It's $15 and you'll consume that in beer and burgers. Click here to join today! Registration for the BBQ is required; please click here.

 

We hope you can join us!
