Looking for Rides in Eastern Massachusetts

Looking either for a group that does existing weekend rides or for folks interested in organizing new ones. My ideal ride would look like:

- loop beginning and ending near Cambridge/Boston
- nice road bikes in classical vein, no carbon fiber
- 60-80 miles
- okay to wear regular clothes and not dress like Lance
- explore scenic places such as rolling hills around Harvard, MA
- relaxed pace, say 14 mph

Any thoughts?

Sounds great to me. If I still lived in Boston, you'd have at least one other rider with you. Check out https://bostonvintage.org/gbvs-events/tweed-rides/
and talk to their Tweed Ride Group: There may be vintage afficiandos. Outside of that, maybe talk to the folks at Harris Cyclery: They might have their finger on the pulse of the local C&V scene.

Bumping this old thread due to the winter blues,,,, I love the classical Bikes idea and the regular clothes and cruising around Boston,,, Priceless at day break on a warm sunday morning!!

In an unrelated sport we all use our modern gear the latest and greatest technology the first 3 sundays of every month but that last sunday of the month your equipment needs to be Pre-1940 era (or like so) equipment only,,,, so finding or seeing a cycling group who broke out the "everything must be vintage or period correct" one day a month would be pretty dang cool to see even if I was curb siding when they cruised by...
