Welcome to Stow Bike for the Woods
 Welcome to Stow Bike for the Woods.


The Bike for the Woods is a family friendly ride to support the Stow Conservation Trust, which protects open space in the town of Stow, MA. The 2016 ride was on August 28. Over 100 riders came together and raised over $2200. A big thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors. The next ride will be Sun August 27, 2017.

We've created many loops starting in Stow, so everyone can find a ride that suits your ability. The shorter rides are fairly flat and are great for families with kids. The longer courses are more challenging, going up and down hills in Harvard, Littleton, Hudson, Marlborough, and, of course, Stow. The ride goes by many of the local conservation areas. The course sometimes change year to year due to construction.

Some of these routes are available to download to your GPS on Map My Ride We have not verified the accuracy. Ride safe!


Weather policy: In the event of dangerous weather, the ride will be cancelled. A cancellation notice will be posted on this web site by 6am on the day of the ride.
