Honey Calendar

Honey Bikes values awesome riding and racing that's different - much of it includes dirt, other riding is simply the kind that takes you to amazing places with others who like to get off the beaten path, too! Check out the calendar Honey put together. Hard copies are here on our table - this is worth taping to the front of your fridge.

Honey Bikes Ride Calendar

Be There: This Saturday is the Harvard General Store Tour

Come This Saturday for the very first ever Harvard General Store Tour!

This is the first-ever cycling event at the Harvard General Store and it's BIG: it's this Saturday between 10am and 2pm. Cyclists will ride from all over to arrive in Harvard between 10 and 10:15am. Between 10:15 and 10:30, group rides of all speeds will depart for a beautiful 31-mile ride covering the roads of Harvard.

Free Food!

The Harvard General Store will be serving free chili and apple cider to riders. They and we will also be passing out free drink cards so that the next time you ride to the Harvard General Store or the Ride Studio Cafe, you will enjoy a coffee or espresso drink free.

Celebrate Cycling!

The Harvard General Store has been a destination for cyclists all around because of its great location and selection of food and coffee. Now, with a new owner and staff who are into cycling, they're fully committed to being the best stop possible for those who arrive on two wheels.

This Saturday is also a celebration of our new partnership with the Harvard General Store! We are supplying them with quality accessories and apparel so that they may offer you everything you need for your bike and for a great ride rain or shine all of the time.

Great Riding!

The Ride Studio Cafe is providing ride leaders for this event. For those riding from the Ride Studio Cafe, groups of various speeds will leave the RSC between 8:15 and 8:25am to arrive in Harvard between 10 and 10:30. An option of returning back to Lexington will be offered for those not interested in doing the 31-mile Tour of Harvard. (The full ride from RSC to Harvard and back is 52 miles. The 31-mile loop option makes for an 83-mile day though 63- and 73-mile options are also available.)


Please RSVP on Facebook if you're on it. Otherwise, RSVP by emailling connect@ridestudiocafe.com if you will be in Harvard Saturday so the Harvard General Store knows how much chili and cider to have ready. Plenty of ride leaders and cue sheets will be on hand so no need to decide until Saturday on which group option fits what you want to do.

Riding Home:


For those riding from the Ride Studio Cafe and are interested in returning to the Studio after arriving, enjoying some food and a little rest at the Harvard General Store (skipping the 31-mile ride option), we will have a fun group ride led back to the Studio. You'll be back right around 12pm. Otherwise, it is difficult to time the various return trips back to the Studio. Group leaders will all be riding back so try to stick with one of them for the return trip or be prepared to do the ride solo. It's all downhill so not a difficult journey back.




Yes, bathroom facilities will be available to all either at the nearby library or at a portable facility. The Harvard General Store is days away from having in-store bathrooms but they won't be ready for the ride.




If you want to drive to the Harvard General Store (map) and ride from there, please park on Massachusetts Ave, next to the store.

C2C Ride: Atomic Cafe to RSC to Atomic Cafe to RSC

Dizzy yet?

If there’s one thing we like at Ride Studio Cafe, it’s good riding with good people fueled up with good coffee. We like it so much, we’re doubling the goodness on Saturday, 15 October with the folks who ride from Atomic Cafe in Beverly, Mass.

We’ll meet up at the Ride Studio Cafe at 9:45 am, enjoy coffee, then ride to Atomic in Beverly with the group who had originated from there. After more coffee, food and general joviality in Beverly, we’ll return to Lexington. Good times, good riding, good coffee. RSC club members will drink a free cup of coffee both here and at Atomic Cafe!


Pace:  Average ~17 mph. Intermediate & fun. We will re-group periodically so no one gets dropped.

Route:  From RSC, we’ll make our way to Rt. 62 and take that all of the way to Beverly. There will be a few spots where it’ll be important to be single-file and give cars room to pass. Otherwise, it’s a beautiful route and not too busy with cars. See the map & cue sheet for the route. (Note: subject to small changes between now and the day of the ride.)

Both legs of the journey will be ~35 miles.

Email us with questions concerning this ride. We hope you’ll join us!

Weekly Sunday Studio Rides

Every Sunday the Studio hosts a group road ride.  We ride all year long and haven't missed a week since we started the ride.  If you're interested in joining us, learn more about the ride here. The unmistakable signs of spring are finally here. The crocuses are in bloom, the Home Opener has come and gone, and the last patches of snow are in their death throes.  Most importantly, Karl (our answer to Punxsutawney Phil) has emerged from deep in winter hibernation to start riding again.  Oh, and the Cafe is starting to serve Iced Coffee!

So time to shed those layers and start riding in earnest.

We’ve been having a great turnout with enough riders to try offering short (20 -25 mile) and long (30 – 35 mile)  rides in two groups.  This has worked well, group sizes stay manageable and people seem to like having different options.  Both group rides are maintaining the easy pace tradition (after all, it is Sunday!).  The consensus seems to be that the 9:00 a.m. start time should stay in place, and so it will.

The other nice thing about a short and long option is that we can take alternate routes, covering different parts of Weston, Lincoln, Concord and Carlisle; pretty much some of the nicest cycling in the area.  We’re very lucky to have country roads, farms and parkland starting just a few miles outside of the city.

Lots of new riders and folks we haven’t seen since the fall (or, like Karl, late summer).  The rider mix continues to be pretty diverse, with some strong riders spinning easy and others getting their legs back after the long Boston winter.  And it is great to see people lounging in the sun outside of the shop before the start. Haven’t seen anyone stock a water bottle with cold brewed coffee from the Cafe yet, but it can’t be far off.
