Exit 21 from rt. 128 to rt 16 East, bear right onto Beacon St. Park behind the building.
Enjoy this delightful ride with a friendly group. We span Newton, Wellesley, Needham and Dover. There's a regular (25 miles) and longer version (33 miles). New! We'll have a pre-ride social gathering for anyone who wants to partake (a free coffee and donut on CRW's tab). We will gather at the Dunkin Donuts at 10 a.m. for the social and then do ride start at 11 a.m. (both distances). It's still early spring so this will aim for warm-ish weather.
Social from 10 a.m.- 1045a: Dunkin Donuts 1148 Beacon St. You'll recognize us from the neon colors and clack of the cleats. Text the ride leader if you can't find us, but it's a very small shop. Note: if you park here you'll need to repark before the ride as the parking is at the ride start. Best to park first at the ride start and walk over (a 1 minute walk!).
11 a.m.: Ride start. We park and meet behind the condo building at 1172 Beacon St., Newton. There is free parking (please park in the back). The ride is show-and-go, everyone at their own pace. You can use GPS or print out a cue sheet ahead (no printed copies at the ride start).
4/8/22 weather note-- we're still on! There is less than 50% chance of rain and a tiny amount if that, so the ride is happening. See you there.
