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 in Harvard we'll follow the hills on the Backroads of Switzerland ride developed by John Aslanian. There will be descents and there will be beautiful vistas, Wachusett Reservoir views and many lakes. You will also see a camel (on the 75 miler only)! We'll detour from the original route in Sterling and pass by Rota Farm Ice Cream - a not to be missed stop! There will be a short climb up to the view at Fruitlands just before the end of the ride. NOTE: A good amount of the climbing is in the first half of the ride.


PARKING: There is limited parking available in Harvard. Follow the directions and DO NOT park @ the store!
