Sunday Morning 9am Rides – Year-Round
April route is a counter-clockwise edition out to Great Brook Farm. 35 miles, 1650ft of climbing, and relatively clean roads. Road surface conditions have changed quite a bit over the winter. Please be extra attentive to your surroundings.
Bring in your GPS and we’ll load the route for you. Now we have a Garmin Touring, 510, 810, and 1000 which you may borrow for the ride. Email us in advance if you want to borrow one for the ride or demo it at any time.
The Sunday Coffee ride starts promptly at 9am. Come 15 to 20 minutes before departure time so you can make any last minute adjustments and catch the latest news on the ride. We don’t want to leave without you!
