Friday Eves on the Mass Central Rail Trail

We ride about 3 miles on the trail, then at that point, we decide to do the following (the choice is based on what riders want to do). You can go around the corner one was and do a little off road, mildly hilly but fun ride for another 2-3 miles and then ride back. You can only ride past the parking lot to the road there and work your way back to the Thomas Street parking lot on this road. The road has extremely light traffic. The last choice would be to turn around and head back the way you came. Either way you decide, it's all very scenic ride but given the time of day and just to be safe, bring bug ointment. We will also be doing this bike ride weekly. It's a great for a quick ride after work or class. See you there!

DIRECTIONS:

From 1-90 coming from Worcester: Take exit 5 off of I-190 and head south on Route 140. At the bridge where Route 140 south continues, turn right onto Thomas Street. The reservoir will be on your left and the Thomas Street parking lot will be on your right. 

From Worcester via Route 12:
Take West Boylston Street, from I-90, exit 1, all the way to Central Street, West Boylston. Take a left at Central. Central becomes Crescent St. At a fork in the road, stay Right. That's Thomas Street. Go about a mile. along the Reservior, to just before Route 140, and turn right into Thomas Street parking lot.

    I wish I had been able to join you but it was our annual wine BBQ. The theme was Zinfandel. See you guys on the next one.

    Perfect weather. And hardly any pesky walkers

      The few walkers who were in the way were duly warned with "Ring, ring!"

    Hi Dan,
