Reminder - East Pepperell Center Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

I hope you got out to enjoy the beautiful weather today. Unfortunately, if you DO enjoy the weather in New England, just wait 10 minutes. The forecast for tomorrow features a 90% chance of rain / snow in the morning and just rain in the afternoon. One of our intrepid riders report that the NRRT is still covered in slush north of Groton, Thanks Ed!

I will send out email and update the website before 8:00 tomorrow morning with the GO / STOP ride status.

We will meet in East Pepperell Center at the gravel Rail Trail Parking lot.

The Monday morning Recreation Ride will take us south on the NRRT to Groton Center and then to the new Surrenden Farm conservation area. From there, we will check out the mural under the bridge on our way back to Pepperell. The route is mostly on the rail trail, basically flat and about 14 miles. There is a tiny bit of gravel at Surrenden, but a road bike will work fine. Here is a map.

The Monday afternoon Recreation Ride will take us north across the new covered bridge to Hollis, NH along the Nissitissit River. From there we turn back to historic West Pepperell, avoiding as many hills as possible, to check out the shrine and the pound. The route is about 12 miles, a bit hilly (250 feet gain) and there are some smooth dirt roads along the way. A sturdy road bike will work.  Here is a map.
