Ride Description

CRW has launched a new ride concept called "Devo" for Development for all riders who want to improve their performance and enjoyment of cycling. This is a chance to learn and work on paceline skills on the gorgeous roads of Dover. Groups are divided into 8-10 riders by average pace which ranges from 14 to 22+ mph.

After about a mile to get warm we launch onto Pond road, a tree-lined, rolling hill and quiet road to get your legs pumping. A short flat road to South Natick and then down towards Dover. Another short stretch before turning onto Main and then onto Claybrook, where the fun really begins. Dips and lifts, curves and straightaways. A chance to catch your breath as we move into Dover Center and then it's TT time! Tuck in because this is the famed Dover TT segment, a sharp turn onto Farm St and keep the hammer down. A final turn and a hard push to finish. Next up onto Walpole until we turn onto Powisett and it's smooth as butter blacktop, before transitioning onto Dover and then a left and some rollers up to Summer. Our route hooks back now toward Dedham Street, with a great dash along the Charles river on Mill Street before we Strip the Willow. Cross St takes us back to hit Claybrook once more (so good you need to do it both ways!) A Sprint at the end, then a small climb to Pleasant. Almost home! A nice descent and then a great up and up again climb on Union, time to pour out whatever you have left. Last turn and an easy roll back down to Natick Common.

Cancellation due to poor weather is posted before 4:30 PM.
