|Every morning while commuting to work (around 7:45am), I always see a group of 10-30 cyclists going by in the Waltham area around Winter Street, Totten Road, etc... toward Bentley college. Anyone here belong to that group or know who they are? Just curious....|

|you might want to ask at belmont wheelworks, on trapelo road in belmont. i would bet that the group ride is affiliated somehow with them, or the folks who work there at least know some of the riders.|

|Yeah you might be right. I have seen some of those cyclists hanging out at belmont wheelworks.
They usually regroup at the rotatory near Bentley. After that, they probably head back to wheelworks.

|I am pretty sure they are not CRW since I don't see them wearing CRW jerseys. Nashoba is further up north. I don't think they will drive all the way down here to just do morning rides.|

|Probably riders affiliated with one (or many) of the area's collegiate teams. The loops go out and over Trapelo (crossing the Reservoir) loop in and around Weston/Lincoln, and then back over the Reservoir to Waltham/Belmont etc. (i.e. down Totten Pond Rd.).

|They leave from Newton at 5:45 most mornings as I understand it.
I rode with a bunch of these guys on the Pan Mass Challenge this year. We start a day early on the NY line and ride to the official start in Sturbridge. Good group of guys.
