Western MA cyclists enjoyed a relaxed, 20-mile warm-up ride on scenic country roads in the southwest corner of the Berkshires on May 21. Starting in Great Barrington, MA, we rode a clockwise loop through Sheffield and Egremont at a sustained pace of 11-13 mph. Total elevation gain over the course of the ride was just under 800 feet (about 40 feet per mile). View upcoming activities at outdoors.org
