Jump in on NSC's classic Thursday Wakefield Ride at the classic Thursday Wakefield Fast Pace.  Beginning at the head of Lake Quannapowitt, we roll up through Lynnfield Center, past Pillings Pond.  Then down Lowell/Chestnut St, into North Reading Center, and loop around back to Lynnfield for a terminal velocity descent.  Finally a zippy chase around Quannapowitt for a glorious finish and the weekend can begin. 

There will be two groups starting out:  This fast pace group and an intermediate pace group.  

Ride leader: Scott Wagneer (Fast group)
