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.I hope to add other development opportunities in addition to pace line riding; Not all the details are worked out yet so this will be a work in progress. 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. A Pace Line Clinic is held each month. This Pace Line is No Drop and we start around 14 - 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.

Curious to see who is taking home the glorious CRW-Devo Climbing Challenge polka dots socks at this month's raffle? Join us next Thursday @ 8:00PM on a social Zoom call.

 

For july we have over 30 qualified participants and just 10 socks. The competition is fierce!

 

BYOB, seat back and relax while our MC (Doug Cornelius) randomizes qualified participants names to painstakingly slow raffle the socks. Take a sip and talk bikes with likeminded CRWheelers for the next 30 minutes or so. This is also a great opportunity to discuss weekend ride plans, how to quickly accumulate elevation against the Everesting goal, and chat about the latest and greatest gear you got.

Here is the Zoom invite link:

Looking forward to meeting you there.
