Sunday Morning 9am Rides – Year-Round
October has snuck up on us once again. Leaves are changing colors and the temps have you reaching for knee and arm warmers. Such fantastic conditions deserve a special route out to Harvard, taking in all the charm New England has on offer. The route is 62 miles, with a stop at Harvard General Store to top off the fuel tank.
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 at 9:00 am. 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 :-)!
Route for every Sunday in October is here for Sunday 9am RSC rides (click on map to go to RideWithGPS.com & download file/print cue sheet).
