This Week - Pepperell - Hollis - West Acton

Dear AdventuRiders,

Last week, we had an amazingly good time on the Paddle, Pedal & Picnic and we had a nice, slightly wet, ride Friday afternoon. This week, the weather for Monday is looking like a top 10 day. The forecast is for sunny and 60 in the morning and near 70 in the afternoon.

The morning Fitness Ride will go to quaint Hollis Center by way of the Beaver Brook Association after visiting the new covered bridge and the Nissitissit River. We will also stop at the Nashua River Rapids on the way back. The route is about 16 miles with 500 feet total ascent. There are a few miles of dirt / gravel road, but other than that it is all paved. As usual, I plan to ride my road bike.

Lunch will be at the Pepperell Spa.

The afternoon Recreation Ride will feature the Nashua River Rapids in Hollis, NH. The route is all on road and between 10 and 13 miles long depending on how we are doing. Its mostly flat with just 360 feet total ascent.
