Fairbank Senior Center Parking Lot

40 Fairbank Rd
Sudbury , MA

From Rte. 128, take Route 20 West through Weston and Wayland to the light at the intersection with Rtes. 126/27. Turn right onto 126/27 and continue straight to stay on Rte. 27. Follow Rte. 27 about 3 miles into the town of Sudbury (traffic light). Continue straight on Hudson Road as Rte. 27 bears off to the right. Go another 1.5 miles and turn right onto Fairbank Rd. If you pass the large ball fields, you've gone too far.

Enjoy a 30 or 40 mile loop ride from Sudbury west to Northborough and back, and opt-in to win prizes by showing up with a favorite biking item from rides gone by.   The routes pass several historical locations, like ice cream-offering Berlin Farms (1731), the Goodale homestead in Hudson (1702), and the Wayside Inn (1716).  There are several locations along each route for refreshments and bio breaks, see the RWGPS links for details.


Before the rides start, riders can opt-in for a chance to win 3 gift card prizes that will be awarded to 3 different riders for bringing:


 - a memorable bike (down tube shifters NOT required) OR

- a favorite bike accessory (handlebar end streamers anyone?) OR

- a trusty clothing item (any capes must be worn with flair...)


that brings back fond memories of rides and adventures past.  Items can be from the recent past (like the last 2-3 years) or the previous millennium (like my 1999 Spectrum road bike). So take a quick look around your garage or basement before heading to Sudbury this Saturday.
