    MA rides anyone? Boston area?

    I live in the boston area and am just looking for people to go casually riding with. I am in my early 20's and usually go for about 10-20 miles at time. Let me know if you're interested, thanx!

    I'm checking out a group ride, a tour of Somerville, on Saturday. It's about 10 miles, but so far I've only done about 5, since I'm more of a commuter. I'm up for meeting up some time though I think may be a slow rider.

    I'd be interested in rides. I have a bunch of the Rubel bike maps. I've done a few, but I'd be interested in doing them with others. Email me at wolfprime@gmail.com if you're interested.

    I wish the CRW rides didn't require a car to get to for the most part. I live in Somerville and I don't have a car. I have yet to get out to one of these rides due to that.

    just an FYI --- the MBTA allows people to bring their bike on the T, bus or commuter rail ANYTIME on the weekend and anytime (except for rush hours) on weekdays. So if there's a bike ride, maybe public transportation can get you to it.

    I live on the North Shore, but work in Hopkinton (near Worcester). I'll keep an eye on this thread and once the snow and cold settle down a bit I'll definitely be game for a ride or 2. Also, most bike shops have organized rides. Just ask someone who works at one.

    Yeah, the shop that I'm working at in south Plymouth is going to start organizing some group rides during the season. I would also be interested in doing some closer to the city however. Does anyone have any prior experience with any good routes in that area?

    Have you checked out cue sheets on sites for Charles River Wheelmen? Or Seven Hills Wheelmen (Worcester)?

    Hey Mark --- I've done a couple of rides from Stone's books (I also got his one for Central and Western Mass) and there are some really good rides. I'm still no where's near B2B shape though!

    Thought I'd bump this thread up a bit as the weather's starting to get awfully nice. This weekend (4/16, 17) is supposed to be much like last weekend --- 60's and sunny.

    I'm usually up for a small group --- 2, 3 riders, but checkout this thread: Portland Area Ride Short Report

    Something to keep in mind.

    forgot to mention, I was on the Harris Cyclery website today and they are organizing rides starting at their store in Newton on thursday evenings. They are supposed to be about 20 miles or so long through the neighboring suburbs to the west at a casual pace, no one is left behind.
