 At hundreds of locations around the globe at 7 p.m. local time, cyclists roll out
 on the Ride of Silence. People bike silently and slowly in memory of cyclists killed
 on the road, in honor of those injured on the road, and to promote awareness about
 cyclists and motorists sharing the road.

  The Seven Hills Wheelmen ride is in memory  of Eugene D. Murphy, 76, of Worcester
  and Robert J. Wall Sr., 55, of Grafton, club members who were killed while cycling
  on Feb. 17, 1993, in Florida. We will ride around Wachusett Reservoir, or maybe a
  shorter route if we don't have enough daylight.

 Note: This is separate from our Wednesday night Show 'n' Go ride, which starts earlier
 at the same location and may be faster and not silent.

Activity: Road ride, 33, 45 or 57 miles  -- joint ride with Charles River Wheelmen
Location: Devens
Time: 10:00 a.m. 
Organizers: Steve & Claire Robinson, steven.e.robinson@comcast.net or claire.v.robinson@comcast.net, 978-425-5296
 

Meet at the Mount Wachusett Community College parking lot at Devens.
(From Route 2, take exit 37 for Jackson Road, go through the first traffic light,
and MWCC’s lot is your first left after the light.)

 

A tour of back roads near the New Hampshire state line. This is a joint ride with Charles River Wheelmen.
The organizers will not lead or sweep; just follow the arrows, the cue sheet, and/or the GPS files.

 

The rides go north through rolling terrain from Devens toward Mason, N.H. While the short ride
returns through Townsend and Groton, the longer rides tackle hillier roads north of the border
and have a rest stop at Parker's Maple Barn before returning through Brookline, N.H. (good
hill practice for the upcoming King's Tour of the Quabbin). Note that the 57-mile ride has
several significant climbs. No go if it rains or the roads are wet.

 

The routes will be arrowed.

Selected Saturdays or Sundays

EASY C RIDER

Activity: Road rides, mostly 15-35 miles, C
Location & Time: See www.easycrider.com  
Leader: Dick Goodman, leader@easycrider.com

These are easy-paced Saturday or Sunday rides led by club member Dick Goodman. Time and location varies. Rarely over 35 miles, and Dick doesn't go looking for hills. Check www.easycrider.com each week for the lowdown. Usually the weekend plan is online by Thursday night. Dick discourages phone calls but can be reached at leader@easycrider.com and requests RSVP by 10 p.m. Friday, via e-mail or Facebook group, so he knows who's coming.

If you want company when you bike, e-mail your plan (time, date, place, activity) to LTolman@LTolman.org and Lynne will forward it to everyone in the club. It’s best to contact Lynne by noontime Thursday for weekend activities.
