Seven Hills Wheelmen
Sat & Sun morning road rides - return of the Easy C Rider

Join Dick several times a month for a   real   C ride. Almost nothing over 35 miles.

"Hills are a necessary evil in New England.
That doesn't mean I have to go looking for them.”

"We climb hills because they are there.” NOT ON THESE RIDES WE DON'T. Our motto is "NO GRATUITOUS HILLS”

A record 50 Easy C rides in 2010. Only 39 rides in 2011, 24 in 2012, 35 in 2013

Nov 24, 2013- season winding down with 35 rides this year
2016 late start - mid May but we are open
2017 weather ends season early
2018 ECR season started late, in May !!
2019 ECR season starts later, in June !!
2023 ECR back after 2 years Covid and
leader leg issues

New procedure (starting 7/20/02 ride): Preliminary ride info may occassionally be posted here Tuesday night, but don't count on it! Final ride info will be posted here Thursday night. As a courtesy please e-mail Dick or notify via the Facebook group group by 10pm Friday (or Saturday) if you're planning on riding on Saturday (or Sunday) so I know who to expect. Rain always cancels the ride. Effective 7/28/06, rain and other cancellations will be posted on this page at least 1 hour before ride start time.

The fine print    (revised 6/25/2011, you should probably read this once) Go right to the current ride schedule

Many Easy C Riders keep coming back.
They say the routes, the rides and
the company are lots of fun.
Join them!
