Another Bicycle Tuneup Special

Dear AdventuRiders,

The other Bill (Thanks Bill) found this Special from the CycleLoft in Burlington.


Groton Town Meeting Articles

Dear AdventuRiders,

If you are not a Groton resident, you can ignore the rest of this message and go back to staying warm.

Otherwise, there are 2 articles of interest to outdoor people at the Groton Town Meeting on Saturday.

1. Treating the invasive weeds in Knops Pond and Lost Lake. 

As many of you know, our intrepid rider Alex has been working hard (and writing compelling articles) with his friend Art Prest to save the Groton Lakes from being overrun with invasive weeds. They have gotten all the approvals and now its just a matter of getting funding from the town for herbicide treatment. The article will be for $95,000. This is the first step to reopening Town Beach for the enjoyment of all.

It is the first article to be considered, so your prompt arrival at 9:00 AM on Saturday 01/26 at the Middle School is essential to getting the 2/3 majority needed.

2. Fitch Bridge replacement. 

The prices came in much lower than expected.  Rather than the $600,000-$650,000 expected for a new bridge, the prices were $160,000 for demolition alone and ~$386,000 for the whole project (including demolition of the old bridge).

We've stopped by this bridge many times, and being able to cross the river at this point allows us to avoid riding on 119 or 225. YAY!


Actual Bicycle News in January

Dear AdventuRiders,

One of our intrepid riders. Richard, send along this link for bicycle tuneup discounts at Goodales in Nashua. NOTE: Its only good until the end of this month. Thanks Richard!

Although I'm not planning to ride the Bike New York Five Boro Tour, (been there, done that) the registration opens at NOON tomorrow and usually sells out quickly. Its a great experience and you get to see NYC in a whole new way. The logistics of getting there and back are a problem, and 32,000 bicycles is still hard for me to imagine even though I've done it twice. Definitely something for the bucket list though.


Rails-to-Trails Greenway Sojourn

Dear AdventuRiders,

I've never done this ride, but it does sound interesting.

And now, back to waxing my skis :-)
