This week - Lunenburg - Portsmouth - Dunstable

Dear AdventuRiders,

The bad news is that the weather isn't looking good for Monday :-( The forecast calls for cloudy, windy, rainy, and cold. The weatherman has been wrong before, so I won't make the call until Monday morning before 8:00 AM.

The good news is that the forecast for Wednesday is looking very nice at this point. So, I am planning a special ride along the seacoast to Portsmouth, NH for lunch. The morning route will feature the beautiful NH seacoast, Newcastle Island, and the fort where the Revolutionary War really began in 1774. In the afternoon, we will cruise some of the scenic inland roads back to Hampton. The route is about 32 miles, all on road and 360 feet vertical (not much). Here is a map. Stay tuned for more details!

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.
