Welcome to May… Spring may finally be here

All those April showers will surely lead to plenty of May flowers, and the action is picking up on the cycling scene in Massachusetts.


First off, it’s National Bike Month and many activities are happening in Massachusetts to celebrate the occassion. See MassBike’s summary info here for Bike Week (May 12-19).

Racing highlights include the Sterling Classic Road Race, a great event on a great course. The race is in it’s 13th year. On the charity front, the Volvo Best Buddies Challenge, featuring pro cyclist Mark McCormack, takes place on 5/19.

Great club rides include the CRW Spring Century out of Wakefield on May 20th. A relatively flat route that weaves its way up to New Hampshire and back, this is a great first century of the season. As always, CRW also includes a variety of shorter route options. The North Shore Cyclists will be holding their annual Mother’s Day Ride on May 13th.

Get out and ride!
