Ride Start: 

Sure you've done a metric century before, but how about on a Friday at 5 AM?

Join CRW's Roosters for a fast metric century that focuses less on climbing and more on speed. Plenty of opportunity for pace lining and socializing. Starting from Mighty Squirrel Brewery in Waltham, we'll head to Groton via Lincoln, Acton and Littleton then back to TMS through Westford, Carlisle and Concord. This scenic and relatively flat metric includes a quick regroup/bathroom/snack at Dunkin' Donuts (mile 30). We will skip our longer second breakfast stop at Haute Coffee in Concord center (mile 56) from November to March given the colder weather and lack of indoor space.

Please note that riders who fall behind are dropped. This group rides 17+ minimum on average, but minimum pace on a given week may be higher depending on the riders participating. Each rider should be prepared to ride solo if dropped - GPS, repair kit, proper visibility gear, lights, etc. We cannot predict how many riders will join who cycle at your exact pace. All riders must be able to navigate the route on their own and should be prepared to manage mechanicals and other mishaps.

Outside of summer months, this ride is very dark. Headlights and tail lights are required! High-viz clothing is also encouraged.

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.
