We're back! Officially starting 4/16.
Rolling at 5:30PM sharp from Assabet River Bicycles, 90 Cherry St, Hudson

-- Have the route loaded on your cycling computer or know the roads well enough to make your own way back to the start! --

A Group
The A group is at race pace with aggressive assaults of the hills and attacks at any time at any place. Expect minimal to no stopping or easing of the pace. There will be a "soft" regroup at Harvard Center. Expect average speeds of 21+

B Group
Although a 'no-drop' ride this is a hard training ride with a fast pace line on the flatter sections and aggressive assaults on the hills. There will regroups atop the hills. Full regroup in Harvard Center. During maximum daylight weeks, a "B+" group may form to do the full A route distance.
Average speeds can be 18-20 (stronger "B+" a solid 20 with a core group at 18-19). Separate groups will form after Oak Hill and Harvard center.

C Group will be an easier pace ride where all stay together and typically led by members of Nashoba Valley Pedalers

--- safety first! — all rules of the road must be obeyed ---

The routes:
B: (same as the A, but skip Fruitlands):
B-: (straight in from Harvard center):

C group/route may change week to week.
The split between B and B- will be determined by one of the ride leaders based on how separated people are after Oak Hill and in Harvard Center (also to be clarified at the start of each ride)
Everyone starts together, rolling out lined up by group. However, for 2024 the "A" group will start at 5:30 with B's following at 5:32.
