Ride Start: 

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.

Starting in Weston and following mostly quiet roads out to Bolton, get a chance to see the last of the Fall foliage.
On the way back some climbing up to Harvard and return through Acton, Concord (for some hot chocolate) and Lincoln.

Friday night under the lights. Computer lights.
Sprint Night is back for the winter season. (Were we wearing short sleeves last weekend?)
It's laps of a short route for an hour. Beat your sprint PR. Beat your friend's sprint PR. Earn the green jersey. Slower pace to recover, then a slamming of pedals at the green line.
Ride is post in the CRW Zwift club
