Change of Plans - Groton Center Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

I've given up trying to figure out tomorrow's weather! The best I can tell is should be "Patchy fog in the morning. Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers." in Portsmouth. Not ideal for spending all day at the coast. 

So, since I need a ride before my legs atrophy, I designed a nice ride from Groton Center that will get us out of the house and give us the ability to bailout if the weather turns ugly.

On Wednesday, April 27th - Groton Center

We will meet in Groton Center at the Nashua River Rail Trail parking lot. Here is the starting point map.
  • The route will take us down Martin's Pond Road to Baddacook Pond, over to Massapoag Pond, and down to Keyes Pond. From there we will ride to Tyngsboro and UP to a beautiful view in Dunstable.
  • We can get lunch at The Convenient Mann in Dunstable and / or have a picnic at Larter Field.
  • Then we cruise the backroads to Sand Hill Road and catch the rail trail back to the Center. The route is about 26 1/2 miles with about 500 feet vertical (moderate). Here is a route map. There is a bit of dirt / gravel but I'm planning to bring my road bike.

Here is the schedule:
  • At 9:30 AM - The Exploration Ride will leave.
  • At noonish - Lunch.
  • At 2:30 PM - We will be back.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
