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.

 

Join us for a fun and social intermediate gravel/mixed terrain ride. This ride is a bit more technical than the Battle Road ride and is mostly on fire roads with some technical roots, sand and rocks. There are also a few smooth single-track sections. According to Strava, the route is 65% unpaved. If you have gravel tires 32–35mm, and have ridden on the Estabrook portion of the Dirty Battle Road, you should be fine.

Start at Revolution Hall and ride on the road past Hanscom to the eastern entrance to Minuteman National Historic Park. Follow the Battle Road to the gravel Bedford Lane, up and over Route 2 to Sandy Pond, and then around (with a short incline) Pine Hill and into the Adams Woods, passing south of Walden Pond. There’s a short steep sandy descent back to Walden St, which we cross and go back into the woods around Goose Pond and under Route 2 via a spooky tunnel. After crossing Route 2, we see the Thoreau and Dr. Seuss memorials and head back to Rev Hall via the Reformatory Branch Trail.

With more gravel this ride will not be as quick as the Battle road ride, but with a 5:30 start we have plenty of time before dark. Finish at Revolution Hall, and treat yourself to a beer!

 

** Note: the route has been updated to exclude the short section through Walden Pond (which is off limits for bikes).  Please use the new RidewithGPS route.

*** Bring proper navigation tools: GPS device, phone app, or cue sheet. Do not rely on others to help you with navigation. They may ride at a different speed than you. *** 

*** Bring bug spray – this is tick season, and we will be in the woods for the majority of the ride***

Rain cancels. Ride leader will make the call by noon on the day of the ride.
