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.
All riders welcome, starting at 9:00 am, meeting at the Minuteman Statue in Lexington. It's a friendly ride for those new to CRW, new to group riding, as well as old hands. Ride through Concord and the lovely Monument Street. Longer route takes you into Carlisle. We're divided into four groups, and if you find yourself dropped, just wait for the next group to come!
Four groups, something for everyone:
Touring Pace 10-12 mph - 20 mile route. No drop ride, usually with a Ride Leader.
Club Pace 13-14 mph - 20 mile route. Good conversational pace ride. Riders can drop to the group following.
"Almost There" Pace 15-16+ mph - 20 or 30 mile route. Good workout pace where we can still chat - sort of. Riders can drop to the group following.
Adrenaline Pace 17+ mph - 30 mile route. This ride can be goofy fun, with attacks on hills and even on the flats (when someone is really bored). Bring your grown-up socks for this one as they have been known to go faster -- much faster. Again, if you're dropped, just wait for the next group to come.
