(NOTE: 9/21 updated 42 mile route; please make sure you have downloaded the current route!) Join the Women’s Program Committee for a beautiful, social 20 mi ride through Westford, Carlisle, and Chelmsford. This no-drop ride will take us on quiet, rolling country roads and bike paths. It will be a perfect chance to get to know other women CRW members and connect with all the good friends you’ve already made out there. The 40 mi ride has it all ... back roads, bike paths, ponds, a little dirt (.4 mi), descents, hill climbs (some small and save some energy for a big one near the end) !

We will start at 66 Tadmuck Rd, and end at Drew Farms (31 Tadmuck Rd), a small, low-key orchard in Westford (see notes about parking location), where they have apples for sale, apple picking, cider, and cider donuts! Extend the party by bringing your lunch (they have picnic tables and porta potties), or stay for pick-your-own apples (not covered by CRW). NO restroom at start, but there is a porta potty at Heart Pond off the Bruce Freeman Trail, 2 miles in. Rest stop at 10 mi at Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle (20 mi route).

All registered riders will get a snack of cider donuts. 


PARKING/RIDE START LOCATION: 66 Tadmuck Rd, Westford. There are no restrooms at the start location.
Park and meet up at the business park that is 0.7 mi from Drew Farm. Park near the upper and  mid buildings. DO NOT PARK at the lower building. We will roll out from the business park, and then "end" at Drew Farm for snacks, etc. Riders can meander back to their cars on their own time after socializing at the orchard.
