One Week To AdventuRides Spring 2011

Dear AdventuRiders,

Even though it is still cold and I haven't put my skis away yet, AdventuRides Spring 2011 is only one week away! Check out the picture from the Pre-Pre-Season ride on St. Paddy's Day.

We are planning interesting new rides as well as old favorites this season. We now have two different Recreation Rides on Mondays. Our expanded Friday Fitness Rides will allow us to do longer rides to new areas. Our unofficial and usually on Wednesday Exploration Rides will feature rides along the coast to Portsmouth, NH, UP the hills to Greenville, NH, and the beautiful scenery of Cape Ann. BTW, we keep the Exploration Rides unofficial so that we have flexibility in scheduling around the weather and longer travel times.

We still offer two pass options, the descriptions have changed a bit though.

The One Day A Week Pass entitles you to ride one day a week during the season. If you miss a week, come twice the next week. We don't keep track, its on the honor system. 
You may ride a different day each week if you choose. Here are your choices:
  • Monday - morning and/or afternoon Recreation Rides. 
  • Wednesday (usually) - Exploration Ride. 
  • Friday - Fitness Ride.
The Season Pass entitles you to all the all the rides you want during the season.

Now is the time to:
  1. Find your bike.
  2. Pump up the tires!
  3. Find your helmet.
  4. Take your bike (and helmet) out for a test ride to make sure everything is working properly.
  5. Review our Release and Waiver and bring a signed copy to your first ride, or we will have copies available for you to sign.
  6. You can give us a try for free, and when you decide that this is a great physical and social outlet, you can:

Only One Month to AdventuRides Spring 2011

Dear AdventuRiders,

Believe it or not, its only one month to AdventuRides Spring 2011 season! You don't need to do anything yet, other than hope for great skiing until April 3rd and a huge warmup on April 4th :-)


We have made a few changes (hopefully improvements) to our schedule this season, checkout the calendar picture:

1. We have scheduled two Recreation Rides on Mondays. Each ride will be a different route and you are free to ride morning, or afternoon, or both rides.

2. Since we rarely finished lunch in the allotted 45 minutes, we are officially lengthening lunch to an hour.

3. We have scheduled one Fitness Ride on Fridays and expanded it to 3 hours and 25+ miles. Now you can get in a good workout before lunch!

4. The unofficial "Fearless Leaders Choice" Exploration Ride will remain generally on Wednesdays, but it may move around due to weather or Fearless Leader's whims.


A few words about Bicycle choices:

Our rides are designed to be do-able on almost any well maintained bike. 


The Recreation Rides combine on road and some civilized off road. A sturdy road bike will work, but you will generally be happier with a hybrid bike. You will get a better workout on a mountain bike, but we never go that far off road.

The Fitness Rides will be mostly on road, although we ride dirt / gravel roads, and we recommend either a sturdy road bike or a hybrid bike. A mountain bike will work, but you will need to work extra hard to keep up.


Hope to see you soon,
Bill and Carole
