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.

 

Meet near Captain John Parker statue in Lexington Battle Green.

 

*** Bring proper navigation tools: GPS device, phone app, or cue sheet. Do not rely on others to help you with navigation. They may ride at a different speed than you. ***

Smaller than the Ho Chi Minh gas tank, more obscure than the shroud of Turin, and able to confound the most learned historians - it's the Westford Knight.
One of a number of quirky artifacts in or near the center of Westford. We'll check the evidence of Prince Henry of Sinclair's (he's the knight) pre-columbian discovery of North America.

40 miles from Concord to Westford and back starting at the Keyes St parking lot in Concord Center.

Start at 10:00 AM.

Snacks and coffee available at the Muffin House at mile 24. The knight himself can be seen at about mile 25. But pay attention or you'll ride right by him. The site will be on the right.

Pace will be set by the riders. I'll sweep and try to start riders grouped by speed it enough show up.

Check this website late Friday PM for changes to the route. Any questions call or text Gene at 617-610-1875 or email at ho.eugene@verizon.net.
