Welcome to Stow Bike for the Woods.
The Bike for the Woods is a family friendly ride on the fourth Sunday
in August to support
the Stow Conservation
Trust, which protects open space in the town of Stow, MA. The 2012
ride will be Sunday 8/26. On-site registration starts at 8:30am, and
the ride begins at 9am. The starting line is at the Randall Library in
Stow, at the intersection of Rt. 62 and 117. Snacks and drinks are
provided at the start, all donated by local businesses.
The 2011 event
was a huge success! We had a record number of riders, and raised $2100
for the Stow Conservation Trust. Thank you to all the riders,
volunteers, and business supporters.
Advance registration is $15 per rider over 12 years old, $10 per child.
Register online or print
and mail it in at the address on the form. Or, you can register on the
day of the ride for $20/$15. Your registration fee (except the
small charge by Active.com) will go straight to the SCT. All food and
supplies are donated.

We've created loops of 5, 14, 28, 35, 48, and 65 miles so everyone can
find a ride that suits your ability. The shorter rides are fairly flat
and are great for families with kids. The longer courses are more
challenging, going up and down hills in Harvard, Littleton, Hudson,
Marlborough, and, of course, Stow. The ride goes by many of the local
