Next week's rides

Many thanks to Jane who will be leading Monday's rides!  The rides lately have had spectacular foliage views….


Monday morning:   park at Center Park in Carlisle next to Fern's.  At 9:30, we'll leave and do the Carlisle - Old North Bridge ride which is 15.7 miles long with an elevation of 744'.  We'll be back by 11:30 and have lunch at Fern's.

Monday afternoon at 12:30 we'll leave on the Carlisle - GBFSP - 12 Reversed ride which is 11.9 miles long with an elevation of 541'.

The weather is forecasted to be mostly cloudy with a high of 71.  


The forecast is for rain on Wednesday.

Friday is TBD but I'm happy to have suggestions:  the weather is supposed to be good with a high in the mid-60s.  We could try for Cape Ann again if enough people are interested….

Have a nice weekend.

from yesterday's ride:

Friday's Ride

Due to some schedule issues, we'll not do the Cape Ann ride tomorrow but rather the East Pepperell to Nashua route. This is a 25 mile route with an elevation of 971'.


The ride goes up through Hollis and the the NW side of Nashua and uses the Broad St. Parkway to go downtown. We'll eat at Seedlings, Riverwalk Cafe, Peddler's Daughter or elsewhere depending on the group's preference. The return trip is via Mine Falls Park, route 111 and the NRRT back to the parking lot at trailside at about 60 Groton St. in East Pepperell.

The ride will leave at 10am.  

Safety Note:   Yesterday was another of those beautiful fall days when it's quite cool in the morning but quickly warms up.  So we use layers on top.  At one point I rolled up my light yellow jacket and tied it around my waist as I've done many times.  On Newtown Rd in Littleton, Hans called out that part of my jacket was in the back wheel.  When I put on the brakes, they grabbed and ate up the jacket and tightened the knot that I had in the jacket in around my waist.  Fortunately, we weren't going too fast so I was able to disengage my shoes and wrestle with the knot. But for a while there, the bike, the jacket and I were one entity.  Had I been going faster I might have gone over the handlebars onto the busy street….

I know only a small number of us will be riding tomorrow but I hope everyone has a nice weekend,

Sunny with temps in the mid 50's to high 60's tomorrow in Acton.  Sounds good!

Tomorrow morning we'll leave from the Station Ave trail parking area (park facing east) at 9:30 and do the Groton Story Book House  ride. It is 15 miles long and has an elevation of 690'. (How many nursery rhymes' characters do you see?)

We'll have lunch at Filho's (235 Main St) from 11:30 to 12:25.

The afternoon ride will leave at 12:30. It is the Groton-Pepperell-Mount Lebanon ride which is 31 miles and has an elevation of 520'. (Nice foliage?)

I believe these two rides are about the same in terms of recreation/fitness…somewhere in the middle.

The forecast for tomorrow's rides calls for mostly sunny and 60 degrees at 9:30 and cloudy and 66 by 2:30.

See you there.

PS  Friday: Gardner!

Friday Ride

Since it's Friday before the long weekend, 

since I'm leaving for the cape at 2, 
since Joel is away camping, 
since the Friday ride is called a Fearless Leader's Ride, I've decided we'll do the 



The ride is 16 miles long with an elevation of 720'. Part of the ride is on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (we'll stop at Hart Pond) and part goes through the Great Brook Farm State Park.

We can have lunch at Fern's after the ride at 11:30 or so.

See you there.

The ride will leave at 9:30 and be back by 11:30.

Lunch is BYO at the playground picnic table(s).

The afternoon ride will be the Bolton - Berlin (fitness) ride - 12.7 miles and 860'

These are both great rides - passing lots of farms and orchards.
