Ride Project #5 for 2012

The first big ride project of the season for me.  A training ride for my good friends at Rialto restaurant and TRADE restaurant.

The Plan:  a metric century with a few good climbs for training.  Heading out and returning to the Ride Studio Cafe

The Route:  Heading to the MIT Haystack Observatory.  Very cool.  Most people haven’t been out there; it’s worth the ride.

The Coolness:  Having the Ride Studio Cafe Sul Posto Cafe at the top of the Observatory climb.  And having two other food stops along the way at Keyks Bakery.

The Result:  We expected about 50 riders – maybe less because the weather was threatening.  We have more than 90 riders!  A great success and we got tons of great feedback.

The pre-ride blog post I put together.
