Welcome to the Stow Bike for the Woods
 Welcome to the 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 ride is Sun August 27, 2017. At the 2016 ride, over 100 riders came together and raised over $2200. A big thanks to all our volunteers and sponsors. On-site registration starts at 8:30am, and the ride begins at 9am. The starting line is at the Randall Library in Stow, at the intersection of Rt. 62 and 117. Snacks and drinks are provided at the start, all donated by local businesses.
Advance registration is $15 per rider over 12 years old, $10 per child. Register online (there is a $3.25 service charge) or print the form and mail it in at the address on the form (no service charge). Or, you can register on the day of the ride for $20/$15. Your registration fee goes straight to the SCT. All food and supplies are donated.
To volunteer or for more information, contact Chris Spear at 978-310-1166 or bikeforthewoods at gmail dot com.
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!
