Rides and Events

Rides require, at a minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Our Weekly Group Rides

Join us on one of these fun rides. Whether you are new to cycling or an old pro, there is a ride that's right for you.

If there's another time you want to ride, let us know. We're always looking for reliable people willing to lead rides from the store.

9:00 EDT, 10:00 EST

This is a spirited recreational road ride with NO riders left behind. Distance of 35 miles in the early spring and increasing to 50+ during the summer with an occasional 70+ ride in the late summer. The pace may be anywhere from 15-16 MPH up to 17.5-18.5 MPH as the season progresses. Usually, the members of this group sign up for TFCE (The Flattest Century in the East). TFCE sign-up is in May and the ride happens in September. TFCE typically sells out all available spots, so sign up early if you're interested. Call the shop to leave contact information for the ride leaders. The ride runs year round, however attendance falls off dramatically once the snow starts to fly.

Off Road Rides

Trek Stop believes in treading lightly. Please ride responsibly. The following links show some of the many local areas where off road cycling is encouraged and permitted.

Road Rides

Many roads in central MA provide great road rides.

At Trek Stop we used to stock a variety of books and maps with some great rides. In today's age, people are more likely to either have a GPS on their bike, or use the web to search for and print out a route. We have been doing this for a lot of years and can share our expertise to help you create the ride that best suits you. We have people who lead rides around the area that can help you identify the most bike-friendly loops for a variety of distances, and as flat or hilly as you want.

We HIGHLY recommend the wearing of clothes and helmets that will increase your ability to be seen by motorists, and that you have a good set of lights designed for daytime use to improve your safety when sharing the road with autos. 

Additionally, there are a number of good cycling clubs in the area that can help you find both places to ride and people to ride with. These include the Seven Hills Wheelmen and Grafton Women's Cycling Club.
