Bicycle tour at leisurely pace to enjoy colorful views from top of Wachusett Mountain & country roads to Concord.
Warm up on the gentle climb from Wachusett commuter rail station for the first 10km, before the steep climb starts to Wachusett observation tower, passing under the ski chair lifts. Lunch stop is in Princeton: bread, soup, salad, & sandwiches at Mountainside Café. It is a long rolling descent afterwards for about 30km until we climb to Harvard for warm coffee at the general store. We continue on rolling hills all the way back to Concord for ice cream at Bedford Farms.
Board Fitchburg line commuter rail at 8:30 from North Station, or other stops along the way, to arrive the last Wachusett Station at 10:05.
