If a rider has not pre-registered, that rider must do so online at the start of the ride. 

The online registration will include a liability waiver that all riders will need to review and accept. 

The online registration will also require all riders to review CRW’s Safety and COVID Guidelines and to agree to follow those guidelines on the ride.

 

Starting at the Wakefield Northeast Metro Tech parking lot we'll ride into the Breakheart reservation and several other woodsy areas en-route to Marblehead.  There'll be a mix of trails, gravel roads, and rail trails, both paved and otherwise.  You'll want a gravel bike.  Though not a techy route, it's a rough ride on a road bike on the reservation roads.  Lots of places to eat.  Jave Sun at mile 20 is on the route and has outdoor seating.  The route is a potpourri of dirt roads and tourist schlock so bike it with that in mind.  If mud, blood, and the ICU are your shtick, we'll have other rides to satisfy your need to bleed.  Pay attention to the 2 pictures.  They show the critical landmarks for not getting lost in the Breakheart reservation.
