Location: Ride Headquarters in Sherborn, MA
Ride Type: Road paved
Time & Date: Every Saturday - 11am
Distance: 36 miles
!! IMPORTANT - 19 January UPDATE: This is a self-led ride today! There is a good chance of freezing rain or snow after the ride begins and this isn’t safe on road tires. Come out with your gravel bike and join in on the Beowulf 11:10am departure of Mixed Terrain riding with your 32mm or wider tires…this is warmer and much better given the weather this weekend!
Description: This road ride allows you to ride nice roads with others. It's at a time that also allows you to ride from home or incorporate it into another ride extending your riding day. The route is all paved roads and as many back-roads and quiet areas as possible.
We’re excited to welcome Charles River Wheelers riders to this ride!
The route will change at times, keep an eye open here if you're interested in seeing which route will be ridden for the upcoming weekend.
