Ride Start: 

Take your Friday mornings to the next level with CRW's breakfast edition of the Rooster Ride! Join our earliest risers for an extra long route that has one goal: ride fast enough (17mph+) to pause, share a lovely breakfast with fellow roosters, and still make it back by ~8 AM. We'll ride from our usual start at the Mighty Squirrel Brewery in Waltham on a scenic route through Weston, Wayland, Sudbury, and Lincoln (including a direct pass by Ponyhenge). At mile 25, we'll take a quick detour to Peet's Coffee in Lexington before returning to Waltham just a little more fit than when we left it. And, for those who only have time to socialize while on the move, this route provides an easy option to roll past the mile 25 breakfast detour turn at Waltham Street, which will get you back to the Mighty Squirrel before 7:30 AM. Headlights and tail lights required! High-viz clothing is also encouraged. Outside of summer months, this ride is very dark. GPS is also required. This group rides very fast. Riders who fall behind are dropped. All riders must be able to navigate the route on their own.

Notes: 

This ride will be leaderless December 10 and December 17, but regular riders will still gather at usual time and place. Headlights and tail lights required! High-viz clothing is also encouraged. Outside of summer months, this ride is very dark. GPS is also required. This group rides very fast. Riders who fall behind are dropped. All riders must be able to navigate the route on their own.

Minuteman Bikeway Trailhead (Arlington/Cambridge)

Alewife Station Access Rd and Steel Place
Cambridge , MA
Directions: 

To reach the Cambridge Minuteman trailhead by subway, take the MBTA Red Line to the Alewife Station. Bicycles are allowed on weekends and during off-peak hours on weekdays; see mbta.com for details.

To reach the Cambridge Minuteman trailhead by car from I-95, take Exit 29A to MA 2 toward Boston. Go 5.9 miles and take the Alewife Station exit. The Alewife Station Access Road becomes Steel Place. Go 0.4 mile and turn left into the parking garage (fee charged).

The Minuteman Bikeway starts on the north side of the Alewife building, at the intersection of Steel Pl and Alewife Station Access Rd. This is the intersection of three bike paths: Fitchburg Cutoff, Alewife Linear, and Minuteman.

A great way to meet other women CRW members!

This is a low-traffic, scenic ride through Lexington, Burlington, Woburn, Winchester, and Arlington! The ride leaves from the Minuteman Bikeway terminus near Alewife (at the intersection of three bike paths: Fitchburg Cutoff, Alewife Linear, and Minuteman). We head down the Minuteman bikeway to Lexington Center, then to Burlington and up Blanchard Rd to the water tower at Mary Cummings Park. We descend to beautiful Horn Pond, spin past Mystic Lakes, and take our "secret" route back to Alewife (that cuts out the traffic in Arlington Center). Expect a pace of about 13-15 mph, with stops to regroup as needed (faster riders can form groups to make their own time).
Rain cancels. Will make call by 10 pm the night before. Will check again at 6 am in case of unexpected weather.
