Leader(s): larrykernan, Mary Kernan
Description: CRW President Larry Kernan and VP of Rides Mary Kernan are thrilled to invite you to join them as we restart CRW group rides.
We'll follow a classic Jack Donohue route that deserves to be revived. It's so named as we visit roads named for all four points on the compass.  We'll hit some familiar and not-so-familiar areas as we wind our way through towns northwest of Bedford. There's not much climbing and it'll be a great way to get out and ride with a CRW group on our first day of reopening!
We are limiting this to 20 riders. Please don't show up if you haven't registered.

This 39 mile ride starts in Bedford with a climb up Page Road. We’ll wind through Lexington and into Lincoln with an even better climb up Bedford Road. The route hits some of the prettiest back roads through Wayland and Sudbury with plenty of shade and new pavement.  The route includes two of Larry's favorite roads -- Pelham Island Road and Water Row. We'll scout out food and potty stops along the route but you should come prepared for self-sufficiency.

You can climb the monument and take in the view. There is a coffee/treat stop at French Memories in Duxbury, or you can stop for an ice cream treat at Humarock.
Please arrive early for ride instructions so we can leave on time.
We're back to the Furnace Brook Middle School

There will be two groups of 10 riders, one for 28 miles, the other for 40. The 40 mile group will leave first, followed 15 minutes later by the 28 mile group. There is no set pace. Check in with the ride leader when you arrive and wait for your group to be called together. Maintain social distancing until that time and please wear a mask.
