Should you need to cancel your registration, please contact the ride leader directly. I would recommend that you arrive at the Hanson Ride by 7:30.

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. Arrive by 7:30. 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.

Ride Start: 

Concord Center Visitor Center

16 Keyes Road
Concord , MA
Directions: 

Rt. 128/95 to Exit 29, Rt. 2 West. Go 4.6 mi., look for the Rt. 126 sign, and turn right at that intersection onto Walden Street. Bear right at the fork. At 1.2 mi. in Concord Center make a left onto Main St. and a right into the town parking lot. The Visitor Center is at the south end of the parking lot. By commuter rail and bicycle: From the Concord station, head north on Sudbury Road, which merges into Main Street, then take the first left onto Keyes Rd -- about 1 mi. Train schedule is here: https://mbta.com/schedules/CR-Fitchburg/timetable

18 miles on jeep roads and trails around Concord.  Mostly off road but crossing many of the main roads into/out of Concord allowing easy bailouts if time or energy run out.  Plan on 3 hours for slow riders and 2.5 or less for those with MTb or CX experience.  No drops and I'll ride with the slower folks.  More techy than a road ride but less intimidating than mountain biking - hence the name "gravel ride".  Start at the Keyes St parking lot in Concord Center at 9:00.  We should finish before the rains starts.  Bring your gravel, CX, or gravel bike.  Any questions call or text me at 617-610-1875..
