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.

Then, on the roads to Great Brook Farm where we'll take dirt roads to Carlisle, and Estabrook road/trail back to Concord. Half paved, half gravel/dirt. Out of the wind and ridden at a gravel appropriate pace. Bring your gravel bike or functional equivalent. Figure about three hours +/- elapsed time. Any questions call or text me at 617-610-1875 or email ho.eugene@verizon.net. Upper Estabrook rd can be rocky but a measured pace and moderation of your tire pressure will get you through.
Start at 11:00am at the Keyes st parking lot on the side away from the restrooms. We should be biking during the warmest part of the day. At about mile 16 we'll go by Ferns if anyone needs a food/pit stop.
