Wald Pond Bike Ride

It's a Dudley Athletics tradition! Come join our annual bike ride to Walden Pond. The stunning ride will take us along roads northwest of Cambridge and bring us back along the Minuteman Bike Trail. The bike ride is about 35 miles (56.3 kilometers) round-trip, and during the ride we will break into different groups according to levels. Walden Pond, made famous by Henry David Thoreau, is a great place to swim if it's warm, and is a lovely setting in any weather.
