UPDATE 3-27-15: Light snow is predicted but the ride is still on for March 28th. However, we’re offering this ride AGAIN on April 4th for riders who do not want to ride in the snow. For the April 4th running there will be no support and riders will need to get a receipt in Sterling at the Appletown Market. Riders who registered for the March 28th ride do not need to register for the April 4th running of the ride.
Come join the New England Randonneurs for our early season warm-up ride. The 100k is a RUSA Populaire — a RUSA brevet shorter then 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.
