The Minuteman Road Club is pleased to announce the Harvard Firefighters Association Ken Harrod Memorial Bike Festival p/b the MRC on Saturday May 31, 2014 in Harvard, MA. The Festival will include BOTH a USAC sanctioned road race AND a bike ride both of which will benefit the Harvard Firefighters’ Association. Registration is now open for both the race and the ride.
Those familiar with the road race the Minuteman Road Club has hosted for the last 19 years will appreciate the similarities and differences this new venue offers. The approximately 10 mile course loops clockwise out of Harvard Center and rolls over some of the 495/Metro-West area’s most familiar climbs. (You can see the course in this Strava Segment). The race course will challenge competitors as they climb Westcott and then Warner Road to the highest point in the loop then after a brief descent, back to climbing on Green Road. This is followed by a rapid descent to Still River Road where two more gradual longer climbs await – the second of which brings racers back to the start/finish in the center of town.
Registration is now open for the race: https://www.bikereg.com/ken-harrod-memorial-road-race and closes May 28th, 2014 at 5pm.
