Ride is cancelled

Sadly, we are rained out for the last ride of the season. But there will be a SWAG raffle for those who have been on the ride this season. The leader is working on this now. Of course, you are always welcome to ride the route unofficially, as some do


CRW Rides are open to members and limited guests. Guests may only attend two rides during the calendar year.
All riders (both Members and Guests) must REGISTER

Guests register here: https://www.crw.org/node/9798?rid=9969&date=2021-09-09

Members register here: https://www.crw.org/node/9797?rid=9969&date=2021-09-09

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.

With the lifting of Covid 19 restrictions in the state, drafting and pace line riding is back on the calendar! Further, the Thursday night fitness rides continue to evolve with changing circumstances and new opportunities. In particular, CRW has launched a new ride concept called "Devo" for Development for all riders who want to improve their performance and enjoyment of cycling.  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.  Groups are divided into 8-10 riders by average pace which ranges from 14 to 22+ mph. A No Drop Pace Line is available if 3-4 riders are interested - we start at around 14 - 15 mph and pick up the pace depending on the experience of the participants. There is an optional 18 and 24 mile route for casual riding and limited daylight.  Cancellation due to poor weather is posted before 4:30 PM.



Sunset at 7:05. Lights highly recommended
