Its time to get up, get out, and get on it! It may be cold, but the ground is dry so come join your Devo friends for a January Century on a flat-ish route out to Pepperell and back. There are plenty of options to stop and warm up, approximately every 15mi. If the weather isn't too cold, we'll stick to 3 official rest stops in Westford (Muffin's on Main), Groton (Salt & Light or Dunkin), and Maynard (Dunkin). The ride leader will aim for 14-16mph overall avg speed.
Note: Due to the elevated risk of black ice, we will use extra caution on turns and make extra efforts to avoid any pockets of debris on the road. Since the temperature may fluctuate >15 F, multiple layers of clothing and chemical hand and foot warmers are recommended.
