Starting at Smolak Farm in North Andover, the routes pass through beautiful quiet forests and along ponds on the back roads of Bradford, Groveland, Boxford, and North Andover. Terrain is gently rolling with a couple of “refreshing” climbs, particularly Uptack Rd.
Riders can choose 1 of 3 routes- 24, 32, or 41 miles, that we offer on Wednesday AMs, starting May 10, at 10AM. (9AM in the heat of July, returning to 10AM in September). The group averages a 12-14 mph pace and is no-drop. Each route’s 1/2 way point is the Boxford police station, and those who wish can take a 4 mile escape route from the BPD returning directly to Smolak
Lunch is at the Smolak Farm Stand following the ride where a variety of fresh muffins, sandwiches, and coffee are available. Riders typically eat and socialize at the outdoor tables. These ride options provide training for the longer rides in the fall, such as the NSC Century, Cycle for Shelter, Seacoast Century and others.
