A lovely little hammer-fest for the first night of the weekend. Gently rolling hills, and mostly low traffic neighborhoods provide a pleasant backdrop for the colorful spandex-clad maniacs who try to beat the clock in this 20.75-mile loop. Riders generally split into fast, medium and rational groups. The fast group will return in less than an hour. The others, a little more. Many nights, pizza and good cheer afterwards at Bellinos near the new start at the head of Lake Quannapowitt.
