We’ll be using a new and improved start location in Concord, MA and the route will be updated to match. The destination will remain Sterling but with some new roads to keep things interesting. Please check back in mid-March for details but in the meantime add April 7th to your calendars.
Come join the New England Randonneurs for our early season warm-up ride. The 100k is a RUSA Populaire — a RUSA brevet shorter than 200k. If you’re considering riding additional brevets, the this ride will give you a feel of what’s to come. The route travels though the scenic western suburbs on a surprisingly hilly route. The ride isn’t arrowed so it’s a good chance to brush up on your cue sheet reading skills. Shortly after the control is Cumby’s ice cream and further down the road is the Harvard General Store if you’re looking for a break.
