Our Saturday Ride leaves the shop every weekend at 9AM. We begin with a relaxed pace up Mass Ave. and the Minuteman Bike Path, regrouping at Bedford Depot around 9:30 or so (you can also meet us here). After announcements, we usually break up into groups based on pace. Jim will lead a fast group (18+ mph) on a loop through Concord, Acton, and Carlisle, while steady group will follow a similar but shorter route at a no-drop pace. The groups converge (hopefully) at Ferns Country Store in Carlisle, where we break for snacks and drinks. At the end of the ride, we usually gather at Starbucks in Arlington Heights to rehash the ride and socialize.
As the weather warms we'll start to add some longer destination rides to the schedule, including trips to Haystack Observatory in Groton, the Harvard General Store, New Hampshire, and hopefully even Mount Wachusett. But April's rides will follow our familiar loops so that every rider can find the group that fits them best without fear of being dropped.
See you Saturday!
