Taking Care of Business

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, I'm back from Bar Harbor, I survived last week's heat wave, and we are looking forward to our 14th season of AdventuRides! So, I have a few items to bring to your attention.

1. The official starting date of AdventuRides Fall 2010 is Monday, September 13th and you can register at either Acton Recreation or Littleton Recreation. Since I proved my incompetence last season, I will no longer be accepting registrations in person. However, both Acton and Littleton now accept credit cards and you can do everything online. BTW, your first ride is free. Give us a try and then register for the most fun you can have on a bike!

2. We are excited to offer the first ever Paddle, Pedal & Picnic on Wednesday, September 15th. Space is very limited, so signup today at Acton Recreation. Its program #134.

There's nothing better than a fall day in New England. Join us for a relaxing day of canoeing and bicycling in beautiful Nashoba Valley. After quick instruction on canoe safety and technique, Diane Carson, owner of Nashoba Paddler of West Groton, will be our guide, highlighting historical and natural points of interest along 5 miles of the Nashua River. Wildlife sightings this year have included great blue herons, bald eagles, beavers, owls, snapping turtles and muskrats. We will then ride our bikes to a delicious lunch at Filhos Cucina in Groton Center. We will complete the afternoon with a moderate bike ride through rolling country roads.

Canoeing equipment, transportation to the put in point, and lunch at Filho's are included in the price. You will need to provide your own bicycle, helmet, etc. If you believe the long range weather forecast, it looks like an outstanding Fall day!

To kickoff the Fall season, we are planning a Pre-Season Ride on Friday, September 10th. The current plan is to ride the Minuteman Rail Trail from Bedford to Somerville and back with our usual amazing lunch at Dave's Fresh Pasta in Davis Square. Stay tuned for more details.

Yes, I know its a little early, but Wachusett Mountain sent me a whole bunch of Greatest Possible Savings club applications. The best deal in skiing costs $10 more this year, but $229 for a weekday season pass is still an unbeatable deal. Stay tuned for more information.

We hope to see you this season!
Bill and Carole
