The two rides start at the same time and at the same place, mostly along the same route. The Social Revolutions is slightly shorter for a more comfortable pace.

 

The Rapid Revolutions longer route is the training ride option. If you want to kick-start the weekend with a quick ride, the Rapid Revolutions is for you! Average speed of 16–19+ mph, go big or go home!

 

Just show up, introduce yourself to others, find someone to ride with, & agree on the rules of the ride. Then off you go. Split into fast & social groups as needed.

 

Option of ice cream at Rancatore's in Lexington or coffee at Peete's or Starbucks after the ride.

 

Meet near Captain John Parker statue in Lexington Battle Green.

 

*** Bring proper navigation tools: GPS device, phone app, or cue sheet. Do not rely on others to help you with navigation. They may ride at a different speed than you. ***

Third time is a charm - hoping to avoid a rainout.  This is Narragansett Bay Wheelmen Ride no. 52.  NBW has graciously given us permission to use this route. 

 

According to NBW's notes, "Designed by Bill and Sandy McIlmail, it is a very flat ride through the cranberry growing region of southeastern Mass . . . Mattapoisett is a picturesque town with a lovely waterfront.  Rochester is a stately New England town with its church and green. Carver is the home of the popular King Richard's Medieval Faire . . ."  This is probably going to be your fastest 50-mile ride of the season.  There is also a shorter 30-mile option.  Thank you, NBW, for arrowing the ride!

 

Food stops:  Country store in Rochester; Dunkin Donuts on Rt. 28, General Store and deli in South Carver.
