Assabet River ride

Join Coach Cate, a Healthy Living Guide, on a bicycle ride along Assabet River and through the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge in celebration of River Fest 2013. The Assabet River traverses from the north of the Refuge outside the western boundary and some 90 acres of Refuge are in pockets on the river. The Refuge has 15 miles of trails for walking and some for biking.

Bike Ride: A 10-mile bicycle ride along Assabet River and through the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. We will travel on roads that are either hard-packed dirt or, in a few places, blacktop. Meet at the Refuge parking lot at the North gate in Stow, accessible from White Pond Road off Rt. 117.

 

The street address is about 1/4 mile before the parking lot. Keep going down White Pond Road, across the bridge and into the Refuge, the parking lot is about 100 yards further.

I rode this trail last weekend. The road is nice and shady and has some good views of the river which it runs along.

    Apart from having my front tire blow out on me, I really enjoyed the ride. Many thanks to the guy who offered me a spare tube when I had none

    Sorry. I need to bow out of tomorrow. I took a spill on my hike today and am already sore.

    Would be ok with the group to take with me my 9 years old son with me. He likes to ride his bike and one hours is just right.

    Would this trail be ok for a road bike (as opposed to a hybrid or mountain bike)?

    June 7, 2013

    • Greg

    Hi, I haven't done this trail before. Can someone give me an idea how long this takes? If we start at 10, do we finish around 1pm? Thanks

    June 7, 2013

    • Greg

      If we went real slow we would be done by 12, but I think it could be done in an hour.
