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.

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.

CRW Cranberry Harvest Virtual Challenge

REGISTER HERE

NO DAY OF EVENT WALK-INS.

EVENT HELD RAIN OR SHINE


 

Spend the day touring through the cranberry bogs of Southeastern Massachusetts with rides from 50 to 100 miles long. The roads are mostly backcountry, and you should have some magnificent views along the rides

 

 

 

We are disappointed to announce that the Town of Middleborough will not allow the club to use the Nichols Middle School as a start and finish location for the Cranberry Harvest Century. The Chief of Police and Board of Selectmen have cited concerns about safety and lack of general benefit to the Town of Middleborough.

 

Because this unexpected decision just occurred, we do not have other options for this key part of the ride. We will cancel the 2021 Cranberry Harvest in-person century.

Instead, we will hold a virtual challenge all day on Sunday 3 October 2021.

Volunteers will be at the following locations to meet and greet you with food & hydration supplies:

  • Mattapoisett Wharf
  • Myles Standish State Forest headquarters

The rest stops will be stocked with generous servings of:

  • Cold brew Starbucks coffee
  • Cliff energy bars, shots, & gels
  • Scratch hydration mix & chews
  • Cape Cod potato chips
  • Vermont meat sticks
  • Oreos variety pack
  • M&Ms variety pack

Restrooms will be available at rest stops.

A virtual challenge means that you will ride a route of your choosing by yourself or with friends. We will offer:

  1. Multiple distance routes ranging from 50–100 miles
  2. Multiple starting locations from Kingston & Myles Standish state park
  3. Multiple options for using MBTA commuter rail for public transport

Route options available are:

  1. 52mi from Kingston https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37597549
  2. 77mi from Kingston https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37597115
  3. 101mi Century from Kingston https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37597300
  4. 58mi from Myles Standish https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37596928
  5. 70mi from Myles Standish https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37596891

We are making minor edits to these routes. Expect final copies to be available on Thursday 30 September 2021.

We will not have any start or finish activities. Parking is on your own at one of these locations:

  1. Kingston MBTA Station, 134 Marion Dr, Kingston, MA 02364. Total parking spaces: 1,030. Daily fee on Sunday: $2.
  2. Kingston commuter train schedule available at https://www.mbta.com/schedules/CR-Kingston/timetable Weekend pass is $10.00.
  3. Myles Standish State Park near College Pond. Daily parking fees MA residents $8 & Non-MA residents $30.

You must have the wrist band that you collect from Myles Standish rest stop. We will also provide a $2.00 refund for parking at the Kingston MBTA station.

If you have singed up for the in-person century and do not wish to participate in the virtual challenge, you may request a refund for the ride from century@crw.org. The deadline for requesting a refund is the end of Monday 27 September 2021.
