Reminder - East Pepperell Tomorrow - NO AFTERNOON RIDE

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, the good news is that the forecast is for sunny skies and upper 70s tomorrow morning. The not so good news it that it is supposed to be near 90 degrees in the afternoon. Since I am a heat wimp, TOMORROW AFTERNOON'S RIDE IS POSTPONED.

Here is some video from yesterday's ride. Thanks, Alex!

Since there is no afternoon ride, the morning Recreation Ride will be a bit longer, and more scenic than usual. We can take our time and enjoy the views on our way to Hollis. Our first stop will be the new covered bridge in Pepperell. It is open to pedestrians and bicycles now. Then its off to rolling farms and the Nissitissit River before we climb up to the Beaver Brook Association conservation land. There are some nice views from the ridge before we stop in quaint Hollis, NH. From there, its mostly downhill to the Nashua River and the rail trail back to Pepperell. We may not get back until noon depending on how fun we are having :-)

The route is almost 15 miles with about 300 feet vertical. There is some smooth dirt / gravel roads on the way, and the rest is paved. Here is a map. I plan to bring my road bike.

Lunch at the Pepperell Spa is still on.

On Friday, June 18th, we will meet in East Pepperell Center at the gravel rail trail parking lot. Here is a map.

  • At 9:30 AM - The Recreation Ride will leave for Hollis. Here is a map.
  • At Noonish - We will be back for lunch at the Pepperell Spa.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
