This Week - Lunenburg - Dave's Fresh Pasta - Horseshoe Pub

Dear AdventuRiders,

Where did the Fall season go? This is the last official week of AdventuRides this year, although we are planning an end of season party for next Monday.

Well, the weather tomorrow isn't going to be anywhere near as glorious as Friday, but it doesn't look too bad either. Its supposed to be cloudy, near 50 degrees all day, and hardly any wind.

On Monday, we will meet between the Senior Center and the Teen Center in Lunenburg Center. Here is a map.

The morning Fitness Ride will travel to Hickory Hills Lake before climbing Bayberry Hill and then zooming down to Pearl Hill State Park. From there, we will avoid as many hills as we can on the way to Lunenburg. The route is all on road, although there are some areas of broken pavement, quite a few substantial hills, and about 18 miles long. Here is a map.

Lunch (after a moment of silence for the late Trudy's Treats) will be at Village Grill in Lunenburg Center. Here is their menu.

The afternoon Recreation Ride will go south to Lake Shirley and then climb Flat Hill (it isn't flat) for great views and then we will follow Mulpus Brook back to Hickory Hills Lake and then back to Lunenburg. The ride is also all on road with some broken pavement, quite hilly, and about 13 miles long. Here is a map.

On Monday, November 15th, we will meet in Lunenburg Center. Here is a map.
