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 9:00AM Sunday. Please arrive early! Park near the bank at the far end of the parking lot.

 

Check the South Shore Mellow Riders on FaceBook for updates and cancelations.

Snacks and swag alert!

Join the Women’s Program Committee for a beautiful, social 20 mi ride through Westford, Carlisle, and Chelmsford. This no-drop ride will take us on quiet, rolling country roads and bike paths. It will be a perfect chance to get to know other women CRW members and connect with all the good friends you’ve already made out there. The 40 mi ride has it all ... back roads, bike paths, ponds, a little dirt (.4 mi), descents, hill climbs (some small and save some energy for a big one near the end) !

We will start at 66 Tadmuck Rd, and end at Drew Farms (31 Tadmuck Rd), a small, low-key orchard in Westford (see notes about parking location), where they have apples for sale, apple picking, cider, and cider donuts! Extend the party by bringing your lunch (they have picnic tables and porta potties), or stay for pick-your-own apples (not covered by CRW). NO restroom at start, but there is a porta potty at Heart Pond off the Bruce Freeman Trail, 2 miles in. Rest stop at 10 mi at Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle (20 mi route).

All registered riders will get a snack of cider donuts and apple cider. CRW members will also be eligible for CRW socks and water bottle raffle.

Notes: 

DO NOT PARK AT DREW FARM
PARKING/RIDE START LOCATION: 66 Tadmuck Rd, Westford. There are no restrooms at the start location.
Park and meet up at the business park that is 0.7 mi from Drew Farm. We will roll out from the business park, and then "end" at Drew Farm for snacks, etc. Riders can meander back to their cars on their own time after socializing at the orchard.

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.
