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.


Explore the full length of the Nashua River and Bruce Freeman Rail Trails. The route starts and finishes at the South Acton Commuter Rail Station, passing through Ayer, Dunstable, Tyngsborough, Lowell, and Acton. Accumulate some flatter km's along scenic rail trails for the Festive 500. Enjoy coffee at Dunkin Donuts in Lowell to stay warm and a round of drinks at True West Brewery for those who finish the ride, sponsored by CRW. The ride will be dependent upon the weather as the rail trails are not plowed after snowfall, confirmation of the ride will be posted here 12h before the start.
