Thursday Night Fitness Rides and Paceline Clinic
This is not a CRW Group Ride. It is a route suggestion for members who are free to use it on any day or time of their choosing. CRW will resume group rides when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
The long route is 28.7 miles for rolling hills through Concord, Acton, Chelmsford and Carlisle. The 26 mile route makes a slight detour into Kate's Corner and picks up the long route arrows on Proctor Road. The ALT 26 mile route [2nd 26 mile file posted below] stays straight at mile 5 and continues up Monument and River streets to provide a route that does not duplicate the TGIF. There is an optional Alt 22 mile route for limited daylight and casual riding. Groups are divided into 6-8 riders each by average pace which ranges from 15 to 22+ mph. There will be a paceline clinic to teach safe group riding skills for up to 6 riders. We ride around 13 - 15 mph and pick up the pace depending on the experience of the participants. Paceline clinics are generally the first Thursday of each month beginning May 2 . Cancellation due to poor weather is posted before 4 PM.
Repeats every week every Thursday until Thu Sep 19 2019.
