New to CRW? Looking for a more casual ride or just getting back into cycling? This is not a beginner's ride, but an introduction to group riding for those who wish to participate in the CRW weekend rides. We start at Concord Center, and travel a route which is essentially flat, but with a few hills, and providing a 17-mile loop on scenic roads through Concord and Carlisle. Riders should have road bikes and be able to maintain 12 mph on the flats. The ride leader will try to keep the group together, but cue sheets and road markings will be available for those who choose to ride on their own. The focus is on group riding, safety, and fun. Feel free to email the ride leader with questions. The ride is on. Morning fog is expected to clear and the sun may even pop. Posted 7:30 AM 9/15/08





As required by our insurance carrier,  non-members may participate in one CRW ride per calendar year and must fill out our release form before the ride.  You will not need to fill out the printed form at the ride.

If you would like to join CRW, go to our membership form.
