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!

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
