    That sounds pretty cool (Harris rides). Any idea when the start time is? I also know that Cycle Loft up in Burlington has rides every Saturday morning at 8:30 sharp.

    I usually do a run of the Minuteman every so often after work... so if ya see a slow-poke on a electric-yellow TCR... that's me.

    I live in Jamaica Plain and will be moving to Cambridge in July. If any of you is interested in group rides on weekends, please let me know? Weeknights can be good too.

    And for those interested, check out the Harvard and MIT cycling clubs. (Just Google them.) They might have group rides that non-affiliates can join.

    I would be interested in some group rides. I live in cambridge. I tend to do 30-50 mile rides on my own but have been looking to increase those amounts significantly as well as get into some group riding. I want to learn how to ride in a pack/paceline etc.

    I live in Chelmsford, and work in Bedford running The Bikeway Source. The shop is at the Bedford end of the Minuteman Path, and also has a huge parking lot.

    From the shop we have atleast two road rides, and one mtn ride a week. And personally I try to be riding 4-5 times a week. The shop is a great starting point because as I've stated it has a huge parking lot and the minuteman path ends at it.

    If enough people are interested I wouldn't mind hosting a ride page or something of the sorts on the shops website.

    Hey guys! Medford here. Am just getting started so my fitness level is kinda low, but i'm game.

    Also check out the Charles River Wheelmen (www.crw.org) for regular rides all over the state. They also have a good collection of cue sheets on their sites.

    And one other tidbit - if you want a ride, some breakfast and the '05 TdF check out the Redbones BBQ in Somerville site. They are having their annual breakfast rides on stage 10 and stage 16 Tues. (http://www.redbones.com/newsevents.html)

    Spazzdog, I rode with CRW lastweek and found the group pretty good... There has been good interest off late... Arsbars had volunteered to host web page sometime back and sure would know some routes around beford.. I usually hit the CRW or North Shore Cyclists rides... A lot of these are marked and quite presumably can be followed... Burlington/Bedford seems to be a central meeting place for the city and burb dwellers.. What say??

    Any of you ever ride out of Boston or Brookline? I would like to get some miles in on or off road, give me a shout if you do. I can't find many of places by car that I need to get to in order to ride. The street names change every few blocks!

    Hey skinnyone! Theres a CRW ride (20 mi) leaving REI in Reading Sat at 10 AM. They call it "Group Riding for Beginners" but I've hit this one before and there are lots of folk at variable speeds.

    Wanna meet up? I'll be there. Female, zebra striped Specialized Allez Comp with an FSA crank and water cages behind the seat(I mention this only because there were a couple other gals there with same bike).

    So I have a silly question - these group rides like the Redbones ones in July... will I be out of place when I show up on my Commuter - an old MTB without drops?

    Spazzdog ---- I'll be at Redbones for at least one of those rides. I lived in Medford for 6 years ('97-'03). Is Hungry Herb's (on Salem St.) still in business?

    No, you won't be out of place. Your bike sounds pretty appropriate for Davis Sq and Red Bones.

    As Frost pointed out you should be fine... If its a no drop ride then its a no drop ride.. The rides are mostly grouped in terms of speed and if you are unsure of the terrain, choose a slow group to scope it out,, Theres always next time. Theres nothing wrong with an MTB.. You might get a few stares from the hardcore though ..

    celtic frost; not sure abt Hungry Herbs.

    Redbones; if it has wheels, you'll be welcome. Make sure you call and make a reservation (they need to know how much to cook). But derek... you can ride your racer if you have it...
