This always popular ride is in memory of the late Al Bolea who lost his fight against Myelofibrosis, a degenerative bone marrow disease, on September 23, 2005. Al was a prominent member of CRW and was co-founder of the CRW Wednesday night Ice Cream Ride, which remains a popular club ride! Al had a profound effect on the people around him. He showed them the importance of valuing and welcoming each person; that riding is about sharing our passion for cycling and enjoying the road together. With this in mind, we will be encouraging you to ride with Al's spirit of inclusion and to ask someone new to ride with today! Routes travel beautiful back roads of Concord, Acton, Carlisle, and Bedford. The long ride will also visit scenic Boxborough and Littleton. Information on Myelofibrosis or to make a donation can be found at the MPN Research Foundation. which is working on a cure.
