Ride Description:

This challenging route deserves a special place in our hearts. Running all year around, TMS takes you from the Brewery parking lot in Waltham all the way to the Harvard General Store and back. Come meet regulars and newcomers to CRW-Devo rides every third Sunday of the month. In the colder months of the year (namely December, January, February and March) we roll at 8:30 AM and all other months at 7:30 AM. 

You will see nice rural settings, ride through countless suburban towns and face challenging hills. 

Equipment requirements:

Bike, helmet, backlights and good humor to deal with what will be thrown at you.

Coffee Shop selection:

You will be taken to the most revered cycling destination of the western suburbs - The holy grail of suburban coffee shops, the one and only  - Harvard General Store.

We all know how coffee shop stops halfway through rides tend to go long... so if you are on a rush, feel free to skip coffee (it's a sacrilege but you will be forgiven). We'll try to keep the stop under 30 minutes, anyway.

The pace will be defined by who shows up and how fit the group is. Although we will not be attacking the group, expect a good paceline to shape up. If you are feeling it, give your contribution to the pull. If not, hang at the back and enjoy the ride.

In this ride we expect several groups at different paces to form. There should be ride leaders with each group. If you feel like you didn't make the best choice, there will be a rest stop around mile 17 where you can switch groups or you may eventually be caught by the following group if you are dropped.

Ride Start Location:

There's a large parking lot at the start of the ride (in front of the Mighty Squirrel Brewery). They have a coffee shop there with toilets, but aren't open before 7. 

Ride Leader(s):
