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.
A feast of rides at the peak of the cranberry harvest season. This event is your chance to ride on roads that are not common for CRW and take in terrain so gorgeous that you might wonder how you have missed it. All options are full of cranberry bogs, lakes, farms, woods, and the flattest terrain in Massachusetts. Take it easy and "smell the cranberries" or record your fastest ride this season.
All routes have RidewithGPS links and Cue sheets. The 32, 43, and 66 mile distances are arrowed, the 102 is not.
All rides are self supported, but there are stores, portapotties, and restaurants along the way on each route. Relief and provisioning opportunities will be noted on the Cue sheets.
There will be ride leaders taking groups out at different speeds for each option, or you can ride on your own.
We will be field testing a new RidewithGPS club account for the Cranberry rides. If you'd like to be an early adopter, learn more and join by clicking here.
There will be coffee and donuts at the 8am start from 7:30 and the 10am starts from 9:30. Come early for a treat before you ride.
At the finish join the party for sweet and savory seasonal pies (from Petsi Pies in Somerville), apples, coffee, and cider until 4:30. Come early! Stay late!
