Reminder - West Groton Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

It looks like ANOTHER Top 10 day tomorrow!
Sunny, mid 60s, low humidity, light breezes in the morning. mid 70s in the afternoon.

NOTE: We are meeting at Cutler Field in West Groton, NOT the Water Department. Here is a map.

The morning Recreation Ride will travel (on the road) to the Bertozzi Wildlife Management Area for an off road visit to the Squannacook River. From there we will climb Oak Hill in West Pepperell and enjoy the views and have a breezy ride down before climbing another hill for more views on the our way to Fitch Bridge. Some gravel roads and a bit of old rail line will take us back to West Groton. The route is almost 14 miles and 600 feet vertical. Here is a map. I am planning to bring my hybrid bike.

The afternoon Fitness Ride will visit historic Shirley Center and the Holdenwood gardens on our way to nice views from Flat Hill. Then we're off to Hickory Hills Lake and Townsend Harbor. A short ride on the future Squannacook Rail Trail will avoid some unpleasant riding on Route 119 on the way back. The route is almost 18 miles and 700 feet vertical. Here is a map. Its do-able on a road bike, but a hybrid / mountain bike would work better on the future rail trail.

On Friday, May 28th, we will meet at Cutler Field in West Groton. Here is a map.

* At 9:30 AM. The Recreation Ride will leave for the Bertozzi WMA and West Pepperell. Here is a map.
* At 11:30 AM. We will have lunch at Clover Farm Store in West Groton.
* At 12:15 PM. The Fitness Ride will leave for Shirley Center and Townsend Harbor. Here is a map.
* At 2:15 PM. We will be back.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
