This Week - Lancaster - TBD - East Pepperell Center

Dear AdventuRiders,

We only have 2 weeks left in our Spring 2010 season. Many of our riders, including Carole, are going to be away this week, so I am counting on everyone to get out and enjoy our last few Spring rides.

The Monday forecast is looking mostly cloudy and low 70s. Not the most scenic, but very comfortable riding weather. We will meet in South Lancaster at Atlantic Union College (NOT the baseball field in Lancaster that we used last time). Here is a map.

The morning Fitness Ride will feature up close views of Wachusett Mountain, a short ride on the Mass Central Rail Trail, and scenic views of the Nashoba River Valley. The route is a little over 18 miles and very hilly with almost 700 feet vertical. It is all on road except the extremely civilized MCRT. I plan to bring my road bike. Here is a map.

The afternoon Recreation Ride will feature the beautiful farms on George Hill and Davis' Farmland on our way to the Wachusett Reservoir. We will ride along the reservoir on a civilized gravel / dirt path and visit the impressive Wachusett Dam (largest hand built dam in the world) and enjoy the fountain. The route is 14 1/2 miles with one significant hill and a little over 400 feet vertical. I plan to bring my road bike. Here is a map.

On Monday, June 14th, we will meet at Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster. Here is a map.

  • At 9:30 AM - The Fitness Ride will leave for Sterling. Here is a map.
  • At 11:30 AM - Lunch will be BYOL, or at Trolley Stop Pizzaria (a couple blocks away).
  • At 12:15 PM - The Recreation Ride will leave for the Wachusett Dam. Here is a map.
  • At 2:15 PM - We will be back.

On Wednesday, June 16th, the weather forecast is looking SPECTACULAR and I am still devising a deserving route.
  • At 9:30 AM - The Exploration Ride will leave.
  • At Noonish - We will have lunch.
  • At 2:15 PM - We will be back.

On Friday, June 18th, we will meet in East Pepperell Center. Here is a map.
  • At 9:30 AM - The Recreation Ride will leave.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and (Carole - vicariously from Italy)
