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.

 

In honor of National Donut Day, CRW's breakfast edition of the Rooster Ride is ending with a stop at classic local donut joint Gail Ann's in Arlington. Note it is cash only! (Yes, it's THAT local!)

Join our earliest risers for a longer route that has one goal: ride fast enough (17mph+ minimum) to share snacks and coffee with fellow roosters and still make it back in time to get some work done. This is a mostly flat route with a little climbing on either end. We'll ride from Alewife Station through Belmont and into Concord, where you will see the Gropius House, Walden Pond, and the Town of Concord. Strawberry Hill is always a treat then back into Bedford. The Grove Street hill will slow us down a bit before a rewarding downhill ride into Arlington where we'll do a final invigorating climb to the Water Tower. Then we route downhill to Mass Ave for our donut/coffee stop at Gail Ann's (you can opt out easily, if in a rush, but really what could be more important than than bike friends and donuts?)

Please note that riders who fall behind are dropped. This group rides 17+ minimum on average, but minimum pace on a given week may be higher depending on the riders participating. The usual group spans 17-20+ mph. Each rider should be prepared to ride solo if dropped - GPS, repair kit, lights, proper visibility gear, etc. We cannot predict how many riders will join who cycle at your exact pace. All riders must be able to navigate the route on their own and should be prepared to manage mechanicals and other mishaps.
