Reminder - West Groton Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well I ate and drank too much on the Cape this weekend, and I really need a bike ride! Unfortunately, the weather is looking most uncooperative tomorrow :-(

On Monday, May 16th - West Groton

We will meet at Cutler Field in West Groton. Here is a starting point map.

The morning recreation ride will cross the Squannacook River and climb up to Hickory Hills Lake in Lunenburg. From there we will climb Flat Hill (it isn't) to Shirley Center and view the spectacular gardens at a private wildlife refuge called Holdenwood. Then we swoop down the hill, cross Mulpus Brook, and head back to West Groton.
