Exit 21 from rt. 128 to rt 16 East, bear right onto Beacon St. Park behind the building.
Enjoy this delightful ride with a friendly group. We span Newton, Wellesley, Needham and Dover. There's a regular (25 miles), medium (33 miles) and longer (47 miles). New! We'll have a pre-ride social gathering for anyone who wants to partake (a free coffee and donut on CRW's tab). We will gather at the Dunkin Donuts at 9 a.m. for the social and then do ride start at 10 a.m. (all distances).
Social from 9 a.m.- 945 a.m.: Dunkin Donuts 1148 Beacon St. You'll recognize us from the neon colors and clack of the cleats; it's a very small shop. Note: if you park here you'll need to re-park before the ride as the parking is at the ride start. Best to park first at the ride start and walk over (a 1 minute walk!).
10 a.m.: Ride start. Parking is behind the condo building at 1172 Beacon St., Newton. There is free parking (but please park in the back only). The ride is show-and-go, everyone at their own pace. You can use GPS or print out a cue sheet ahead (no printed copies at the ride start).
