From 128 Take Rt 4 north to Bedford Center. Turn right on Springs Rd. Follow signs for VA Hospital / Middlesex Community College. Meet at first parking lot on right. By bicycle from the Minuteman Bikeway: take the Narrow Gauge Rail Trail to where it crosses Springs Road diagonally, then bear right onto Springs Road.
Join us for a lovely spring ride through quiet roads of Bedford, Concord, and Carlisle with Westford and Acton also included for the longer route. This is a ride-at-your-own-pace ride. But, you can join one of the ride leaders for a group ride for either distance with a rolling average of 13-14 mph. The lunch stop for both routes is Ferns Country Store in Carlisle. The route has been modified from previous years and is not arrowed. Please print a cue sheet and bring it with you. There are no facilities at the start of the ride, but there is a McDonalds about 2 miles from the start on Rt. 4 in Bedford.
The ride may be cancelled due to bad weather. A cancellation notice will be posted by 8am on the day of the ride.
