The Hanson Sunday Ride is your chance to ride on roads that are not common for CRW and take in terrain so gorgeous that you might wonder how you have missed it. The HSR are full of cranberry bogs, lakes, farms, woods, and the flattest terrain in Massachusetts. Take it easy and “smell the cranberries” or record your fastest ride this season. Ride starts promptly at 8:00AM Sunday. Please arrive early! Park near the bank at the far end of the parking lot.

This ride combines shady, quiet roads, scenic harbors, historic lighthouses, windmills, beaches and beautiful vistas and occurs on some the most spectacular coastline on the South Shore. You'll find that the effort to get up early enough to leave promptly at 7:30 will be paid back by having a great ride with little traffic. Because we start early, you'll be home in time to cook omelets for Sunday brunch! The SSCL will take place every week, weather permitting. 

The 45-mile loop includes Rockland, Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, and Cohasset with a coffee stop in Scituate Harbor. The 57-mile ride adds Pemberton Point in Hull, with its magnificent views of Boston Harbor from under the windmill!

Set your alarm. You'll be happy you did.

Please check the website at 6 AM Sunday for any last minute updates. Notes: The ride will start promptly at 8:30 AM in April; 7:30 May through the end of the season. The Start: Park'n'Ride lot, Rockland (opposite Home Depot)

Notes: 

7/24/21 Old Oaken Bucket is all torn up.  I changed the ride to use First Parish Rd.  Download the new cue GPS. 

 7/25 ride is on.  Rain does not look tookbad.  We will probably get a little wet at times.  No worse than if it was hot and humid.

Welcome to the 2021 SSCL.  There are a few minor changes motivated by road conditions.  The changes are included in the CUE sheets.  

This ride is not arrowed, yet.

 

If the weather is iffy, please check in at 6 AM Sunday morning to see if the ride is on.

Notes: 

In the 1890's, Major Taylor had the unofficial title of world's fastest bicyclist.  He won countless races including the 1899 World Championship 1 mile race at Queen's Park in Montreal in 3:02 minutes.  On today's ride, several participant's names will be drawn at random to receive Major Taylor Cycling Jerseys.
