Reminder - Hudson - 5 Boro Bike Tour

Dear AdventuRiders,

It looks like another TOP 10 day tomorrow. Sunny and 50 degrees in the morning, sunny and low 60s in the afternoon! There are not too many of these days left this year. So, even though its Columbus Day, let's ride.

Not to be outdone by the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour, I present the Central Massachusetts 5 Boro Bike Tour. We will ride through Marlboro, Southboro, Westboro, Northboro, and Boxboro. Along the way, we will ride on the Assebet River Rail Trail, have a snack at Chauncy Lake, explore the old Westboro State Hospital, stop at the Horseshoe Pub for lunch (80 beers on tap!), and then circumnavigate Delaney Pond to pick up our last "boro".

The morning 4 Boro ride is about  23 1/2 miles with 550 feet vertical including one Cat 5 hill (easiest category). Here is a map. The afternoon Boxboro ride is about 15 1/2 miles and 225 feet vertical. Here is a map. There are bits and pieces of gravel, but I am planning to bring my road bike anyway.

On Monday, October 11th - We will meet at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Here is a map.

* At 9:30 AM - We will leave for the 4 Boro Bike Tour. Here is a map.
* At 12:30 PM - We will have lunch at the Horseshoe Pub. They have 30 new menu items for Oktoberfest as well as the usual 80 beers on tap.
* At 1:30 PM - If people are interested, we can continue on to Boxboro and pick up our 5th "Boro". Here is a map. Take that NYC!
* At 3:30 PM - We should be back.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
