|SEASON OPENER BIKE RIDE - Wakefield, MA - 4/19, 10:30am|
Season opener to stretch the legs. Open to experienced riders and those new to riding in groups. Will not be a race; moderate pace with breaks.
Meet: 10:30am Wakefield Lower Common (gazebo near Lake Q.) in Wakefield, MA.
Michael writes: This particular ride is neither a race nor even a fitness ride, just a social gathering on wheels to loosen up the legs and make sure the bike is in good shape, which will proceed for 2-3 hours or so around some easy, peaceful roads north of Boston, going at the pace of the slowest rider along a route chosen by the leader. For that reason, no maps, cue sheets, or arrows are provided for this ride. We will have a lunch stop on the common in North Reading, so bring your own or be prepared to buy.
To optimize leisurely outdoor enjoyment on this ride, it will be postponed if FORECAST high temperatures are much below 50 F, or in case of rain or snow.
Cool/cold early morning temps will not cancel if it's certain to warm up duringt he midday and afternoon and be free of precipitation. If you have questions about your bike, safe group riding, or need minor adjustments, show up 45 minutes earlier than the meeting time, but do not expect major repairs or parts to be available. Strongly recommended riding equipment for all riders: helmet, gloves, brightly colored clothing, spare inner tube and pump.
Wakefield common is located in the center of Wakefield, reached by taking exit 40 (Route 129 toward Wakefield) off Rt. 128/95.
