Description: The Sunday Mountain Bike ride takes cyclists all over Sherborn and beyond. The ride takes advantage of local trails, dirt roads, grassy areas, and other places off the beaten path.  Rides happen every Sunday morning almost regardless of weather - we ride in the rain, snow, and all of the other weather Sunday mornings bring. We change the route to a road ride if the weather necessitates it, this is rare. If the ride is canceled or changed in any way, we post by 8am on our Twitter feed.

And read the Rules and be sure to sign the waiver online prior to Sunday!

Route:  The route is available to attendees the day of the ride at Ride Headquarters.

Ride Notes: We have a designated Ride Headquarters Super Domestique leading the ride and pointing out turns. Don’t have a bike appropriate for this ride? Demo one of our bikes! Email us in advance so we can get it set up for you.

Pace: This is a fun ride for capable cyclists. We are out to enjoy the trails and get a solid ride in, so we aren’t slow, but this is not a fast ride or one that is hard to keep up with if you have some trail riding experience and if you ride at least 16mph on the road on a road bike. Having the appropriate equipment is paramount, as we ride a lot of rougher, less-ridden trails. You should have some experience riding trails before joining this ride. Check out our Gravel Ride if you would like this trail-riding experience!

Doors Open: Ride Headquarters opens at 12pm on Sundays. Doors are open for riders for this ride at 8:30am.

Last Minute Information: Watch our Twitter feed for last-minute updates, weather cancellations or other changes. 

Estimated time: ~2.5 hours

Riding Rules, What to Bring, How Our Rides are Different: All riders are required to read and are expected to abide by These Rules.

Waiver: Ride Headquarters requires a signed waiver before your first ride. Please fill it out online prior to your first ride. 

Proper Bike for this ride:  

  • In soft-trail, wet conditions before the freeze: 32-40mm tires minimum. We still want to be on our mountain bikes but can’t be on sensitive, wet trails. So we ride big tires and on all of the back roads, non-sensitive trails and grassy areas we can!

  • In dry conditions: 40mm knobby tires minimum. Wider tires (2”-4.8”) are nicer! Tire choice depends on your riding skill set.

  • In dry conditions: 40mm knobby tires minimum. Wider tires (2”-4.8”) are nicer! Tire choice depends on your riding skill set.

  • In snowy/icy conditions: Wide tires (2”-4.8”) - with studs when it’s icy! Tire choice depends on your riding skill set.

  • Clipless pedals and shoes. These are important elements of bike control. If you ride with platform pedals you’re likely to be over your head in some of the more technical parts of the ride.

  • A bike that’s in safe working order.

  • Higher tire pressure. We recommend about 80% to 90% of maximum rated tire pressure on your tires, for two reasons:

  • First, we want to minimize flats on the ride; waiting for someone to change flats is not why we ride.  We typically see zero flats on our rides.  One of the primary reasons for this is due to higher than average tire pressure.

  • We do not recommend fenders since sticks and twigs can get caught in them.

When we ride

  • Snowing: We ride; it is so much fun to ride during a snow storm.

  • Snow on the ground: We ride. It doesn’t matter if there’s 1 inch or four feet, we ride. We recommend studded tires or fat bikes for these kinds of conditions. The only exclusion to snow riding is when there is a state of emergency and we’ve been asked to stay off the road.

  • Icy conditions: We ride. For this you have to have studded tires in order to ride with us.

  • Cold: It doesn’t matter what the temperature is, we ride.

  • Ride leader: A couple times a year we don’t have a designated ride leader. It’s not fair for us to send you out without someone to help guide. Of course, if you want to ride without a ride leader, you are more than welcome to!

If you'd like us to do any work on your bike prior to the ride, please email us the day before so we're ready to do the work as soon as you come in; we want you to be ready to roll before the ride!
