Six Routes!

Riders can choose to ride 10 (9.6) miles, 30 (34.3) miles, 50 (50.6) miles or 100 (104.3) miles on some of the best road routes in Eastern Massachusetts. This year, we are also offering, for the first time, two mixed terrain routes.  All of the routes head west-southwest from Jamaica Plain with 'cutoffs' for the different route options.

GPX routes are available below by ride. Pick up a paper map of your route upon request at the BNB Hub and Bike Shop at 284 Amory St. in Jamaica Plain.

10 (9.6) mile ride

The Emerald Necklace Route

The Emerald Necklace Route is perfect for the whole family, while taking advantage of cycling paths wherever possible in Franklin Park, along the Southwest Corridor and near Jamaica Pond. The rest stop has a playground in Franklin Park. Some urban riding skills are required.

30 (34.3) mile ride

To the West(on)!

This ride is perfect for cyclists who do not want to do too much training but want to push themselves. All of the uphill sections on this route are relatively short and the roads are smooth, many of them have been recently resurfaced!

50 (50.6) mile ride

Trip to the Farm

After the first rest stop in Medfield, the return trip is where this route really shines. This route creatively weaves together the best roads and sites from the Dover area to form a secluded and adventurous ride. Aside from a handful of short stretches on main connecting streets, you'll find yourself forgetting cars even exist!

100 (104.3) mile ride

Agony & Ecstasy

Riders will find smooth, scenic stretches through some of metro Boston’s most beautiful towns west of the city, and some rolling climbs further to the west, away from motor vehicle traffic! A century is a challenging distance and riders should expect to adequately train prior to the ride. Shortcuts are also available (see below).
