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.

Ride Start: 

Lexington Green

1903 Mass Ave
Lexington , MA
Directions: 

From route 128 take Exit #31 east (Rts. 4 & 225) 1.7 miles to Lexington Center. Park in the surrounding neighborhoods and bike to the start. Meet at by the Minuteman Statute.

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.
