September 16th, Specialized Ambassador Rachele Pojednic and Wheelworks' Cat Bartash will lead a faster paced longer ride.
Starting at 8 am at Ace Wheelworks, Cat will lead riders from Somerville to Belmont Wheelworks to meet with Rachele. The route will be closer to 50-60 miles and at a 15-16 mph average pace.
What to expect - A 50-60 mile ride at a faster pace (15-16mph average) on mostly back roads. This is a non-competitive group ride, but geared for intermediate to stonger riders. The ride will begin from ACE Wheelworks promply at 8:00am. The group will ride over to Belmont Wheelworks to meet up with riders from there. There will be a stop to replenish water supplies - most likely in Concord.
Requirements - Helmets & road worthy bikes in good working condition. *Sorry guys, this is a women's only ride! Please also make sure you have enough water for a 60 mile ride, snacks, and tools for roadside repairs.
Technical Support - We will have mechanics at the shop on Sunday Morning before the ride and all the free air you can fit in your tires!
Suggestions - Please have bikes in good working condition prior to the ride. Please check the weather and dress appropriately. Don't forget to fill your water bottles and pack a Clif Bar or two.
