CRW Rides are open to members and limited guests. Guests may only attend two rides before joining.
All riders (both Members and Guests) must REGISTER
If a rider has not pre-registered, that rider must do so online at the start of the ride.
The online registration will include a liability waiver that all riders will need to review and accept.
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.
Start/End Wayland Center parking near The Local.
Please arrive by 9:45 am so we can leave at 10 am. Ride is canceled if it's raining and this should be posted by 7:00 am.
The ride is 10 miles and is entirely on the Mass Central Rail Trail.
Adults please sign up as usual and please print out, fill out, and bring this waiver for each participating child.
We ride from Wayland to the Waltham end of the trail and back all at a gentle pace so we can stay together.
This ride is intended for 10 to 15-year-old kids on solo bikes and younger kids on tandems or in kiddie seats. Parents are expected to stay near their children, to help keep things moving, and to make sure that all cross safely at intersections.
The trail is under construction on the Waltham side. If it is not yet paved please avoid exploring as it may be dangerous. I’ll bring Kind bars or something like that to hand out at the stop.
On return to Wayland Center we can lunch together. These two restaurants are near each other.

Or bring your own food.
There is a grass strip between the parking lot and the bike path where we could spread some blankets and picnic.
I hope to use this ride as an opportunity to get input from parents about what types of family rides they would like to see in the future, what distances are suitable for their kids as well as what kinds of roads and terrain.
