All riders welcome, starting at 9:00 am, meeting at the Minuteman Statue in Lexington. It's a friendly ride for those new to CRW, new to group riding, as well as old hands.  Ride through Concord and the lovely Monument Street.  Longer route takes you into Carlisle.   We're divided into four groups, and if you find yourself dropped, just wait for the next group to come!

 

Four groups, something for everyone:

 

Touring Pace 10-12 mph - 20 mile route.  No drop ride, usually with a Ride Leader.

 

Club Pace 13-14 mph - 20 mile route.   Good conversational pace ride.  Riders can drop to the group following.

 

"Almost There" Pace 15-16+ mph - 20 or 30 mile route. Good workout pace where we can still chat - sort of.  Riders can drop to the group following.

 

Adrenaline Pace 17+ mph - 30 mie route.  This ride can be goofy fun, with attacks on hills and even on the flats (when someone is really bored).  Bring your grown-up socks for this one as they have been known to go faster -- much faster.  Again, if you're dropped, just wait for the next group to come.

 

Option of ice cream at Rancatore's in Lexington.
