At the 2017 ride, over 100 riders came together and
contributed over $2200. A big thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors.
We've created many loops starting in Stow, so everyone can find a ride
that suits their 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 changes year to year due to construction.
