Alewife Station

135 Alewife Brook Parkway
Cambridge , MA
Directions: 

Alewife Station is reachable by car on Route 2, and there is ample paid parking; by car or bicycle on Alewife Brook Parkway; on paths from the west (Fitchburg Cutoff path), north (Minuteman Commuter Bikeway) and east (Linear Park). And Alewife Station is the terminus of the Red Line light rail, which takes bicycles except during peak hours in the peak direction. Ride groups meet in front of the parking garage on Steel Place.

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.

Minuteman Bikeway Trailhead (Arlington/Cambridge)

Alewife Station Access Rd and Steel Place
Cambridge , MA
Directions: 

To reach the Cambridge Minuteman trailhead by subway, take the MBTA Red Line to the Alewife Station. Bicycles are allowed on weekends and during off-peak hours on weekdays; see mbta.com for details.

To reach the Cambridge Minuteman trailhead by car from I-95, take Exit 29A to MA 2 toward Boston. Go 5.9 miles and take the Alewife Station exit. The Alewife Station Access Road becomes Steel Place. Go 0.4 mile and turn left into the parking garage (fee charged).

The Minuteman Bikeway starts on the north side of the Alewife building, at the intersection of Steel Pl and Alewife Station Access Rd. This is the intersection of three bike paths: Fitchburg Cutoff, Alewife Linear, and Minuteman.

Ride image: 

A variation on the Praline Croissant ride, but faster and longer. With less bike path, no Horn Pond dog dodging, and an additional loop around Mystic Lakes, this ride is for women looking for a quicker pace (15+ mph) and paceline work. The ride is show-and-go and will not necessarily regroup if riders are dropped. Ride leader may amend route for safety or time constraints.

[The Women's Program's goal is to invite more women, nonbinary, and female-identifying folks onto the road, foster connection with other women in the club, and act as an on-ramp to other co-ed areas of the club. Feel free to contact the ride leader via email if you have any questions about this ride or the Women's Program in general.]

Revolution Hall

3 Maguire Rd
Lexington , MA
Directions: 

From I95 take RT 4 (Bedford St) west into Bedford. Turn left on Hartwell Ave. In 0.5 miles turn right onto Maquire Rd. Revolution Hall is 0.2 miles west on Maquire Rd.

SHORTER ROUTE for early sunsets! We've removed Estabrook and added an out-an-back on the Concord section of the Reformatory. Should finish just as the sunsets. BRING FRONT AND TAIL LIGHTS!!! Join us for a fun and social gravel/mixed terrain ride! This ride is mostly on wide gravel roads & rail trail. Some of it may be rough, sandy, & muddy. According to Strava, the route is 66% unpaved. Tires 32–35mm should be sufficient. If you are familiar with the route you can show-and-go at your own pace; if you are new, we will have a no-drop group.

A journey through Revolutionary War history. Start at Revolution Hall and ride via Meagherville trail and residential streets to the eastern entrance to Minuteman National Historic Park. Follow the Battle Road past several historic buildings, soldier graves, Paul Revere capture site, all the way to the other side of the park at Meriam's Corner. Continue over trails through Concord farmland and open space. Right out to Concord center and back on historic rail beds that connected Lexington-Bedford-Concord: Reformatory Branch & Minute Man Bikeway. Finish at Revolution Hall, and treat yourself to a beer! 

*** Bring proper navigation tools: GPS device, phone app, or cue sheet. Do not rely on others to help you with navigation. They may ride at a different speed than you. ***

Rain cancels. Ride leader will make the call by noon on the day of the ride.

A great way to meet other women CRW members! This is a low-traffic, scenic ride through Lexington, Burlington, Woburn, Winchester, and Arlington! The ride leaves from the Minuteman Bikeway terminus near Alewife (at the intersection of three bike paths: Fitchburg Cutoff, Alewife Linear, and Minuteman). We head down the Minuteman bikeway to Lexington Center, then to Burlington and up Blanchard Rd to the water tower at Mary Cummings Park. We descend to beautiful Horn Pond, spin past Mystic Lakes, and take our "secret" route back to Alewife (that cuts out the traffic in Arlington Center). Expect a pace of about 13-15 mph, with stops to regroup as needed (faster riders can form groups to make their own time). We often stop for coffee at the finish. Rain cancels. Will make call by 10 pm the night before and confirm again at 6 am in case of unexpected weather.
