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).

A variation on the Praline Croissant ride, but faster and longer. With less bike path, no Horn Pond dog dodging, and an additional loop around Mystic Lakes, this ride is for women looking for a quicker pace (15+ mph) and paceline work. The ride is show-and-go and will not necessarily regroup if riders are dropped.
