    Hi Patrick, this is a perfect match....Ride Studio Cafe needs someone to lead some of the Thursday morning ladies rides (18 to 20 miles) at 9 starting at the studio...I may lead one soon and another lady will do some, but would welcome a gentlemen I am sure to lead a route that he comes up with...so if you are interested let me know and i will hook you up with the group of regulars or you could contact ride studio cafe yourself..ask for Patria.....Patty

      Sure, that would be great. I've met Patria a while back, but an intro would be helpful. 9am is bit late for me, but it's a possibility.

    More for the local boston folks, would anyone be interested in doing weekday rides out of the Lexington area in the morning for about 20 miles?

    I'm new in this group and not sure if I should make suggestions but anyway since 14 people are waiting maybe form 1 ot 2 other groups to do the same rte but different times...just a thought.

    April 22, 2013

    • Mr T e.

      i would be hesitant to suggest multiple groups on the same day for the same parking area

    Sounds like a great place to ride and Ty is a great ride-leader, but unfortunately I'm out of town that weekend. Next time!

  • Beth

    This is exactly the kind of ride I'd like to join! I agree with Alajandro, Cape Ann is fantastic riding. I'm out of town for this one, but I look forward to the next!

    April 22, 2013

  • Alajandro

    This is a ride that I'd like to join. But can't commit yet.

    If you haven't ridden in the Cape Ann area, you're missing some of the BEST riding in New England!
