We'll wind our way through beautiful rolling wooded countryside west of Boston, with views of the Sudbury and Assabet River plains. All rides pass through Concord, Sudbury, Wayland, and Lincoln; the 49-mile ride includes Stow and Hudson. There is a scenic 64-mile option that adds Boxborough, Acton. Both the 49 and 64-mile routes go by the Wayside Inn Grist Mill in Sudbury.

Notes: 

Cue sheets will NOT be available at the ride start so please bring your own if needed. 

A detour on Dutton Rd in Sudbury required a change to the 28-mile route. It has been modified to go around the detour making the route 27 miles.

Need a little extra motivation to get out on the bike as the days get shorter and cooler? Join me for coffee, bagels, and more at Blue Moon Café in Medfield. This 35 mile loop is just enough to work up an appetite and then burn off those extra calories on the way home. For those looking for a longer ride, we split off after breakfast to head down to Moose Hill for a little bit of moderate climbing. Optional stop at Cumberland Farms at halfway point.

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. eBikes are welcome.
