The Big Thigh Ride is back! Both short and long rides include several nice hill climbs and smooth descents in the Harvard/Bolton area. The long ride adds a 15-mile loop that includes Lancaster and Sterling. Lunch for the long ride is at Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling. Both rides go passed Bolton Orchards (mile 14) and the Harvard general store (miles 27/44). This ride is not arrowed. Please print off your cue sheet and bring it with you. There is no bathroom at the start.


Check website by 7:00am Sunday morning for updates. Rain cancels.
