GO - Groton Center

Reminder - Groton Center tomorrow (Wednesday)

Dear AdventuRiders,


The weather is looking FABULOUS for tomorrow. Perhaps a little chilly with mid 60 degrees when we leave and low 70s when we return under bright blue skies and exceptionally low humidity.

I am bringing my math-magician son with me, so if you were wondering about "arithmetic progression topology", he may be able to fill you in :-)

Dear AdventuRiders,


I hope everyone had a great summer! I just got back from Bar Harbor and we are planning our 18th season of AdventuRides!

On Saturday, September 8th - Eastern Trail Lighthouse Ride
  • We did this a few years ago and it was cold and pouring rain.
  • Give it a try, its for a good cause.

On Sunday, September 9th - Human Powered Vehicle Festival - Ayer
  • Carole and I will be there, and we will lead a ride to Shirley Center and back
  • I will bring a few of my crazy vehicles.
  • Show up! Its a fun afternoon of unique human powered contraptions.

On Saturday and Sunday, Sept 22-23rd - Seacoast Century
  • Since I turned 60 this summer (gasp!), I'm making noises about riding the full century in one day.
  • The Portsmouth bridge is gone this year, so the Century route goes through Dover, NH.
  • This is basically the same route we did 2 years ago, except we won't go to Rollinsford.
  • The ride around "Great Bay" is really pretty and you don't have to contend with sea breezes.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
