Change of Plans - West Groton Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Here is a picture of Carole being mobbed by goats on the Westminster ride yesterday. I'm putting together a slide show of the Spring season. If anyone want to contribute, just email them to me. THANKS!

So we've come to the Last Fitness Ride of the Spring 2011 Season. Fear not though, the FREE SummeRides series start soon. 

The weather isn't looking real cooperative, so I changed the ride from Townsend - Greenville to a more flexible West Groton - Brookline ride. There are many ways to cut this ride short if the weather turns threatening. The forecast calls for "Few Showers" and 70s in the morning with "Scattered T-Storms" in the afternoon.

The ride itself will take us to West Pepperell past Mount Lebanon and the beautiful farms before we tackle a bit of Oak Hill on out way to Bohanon Bridge on the Nissitissit River. From there it is UP to Wallace Hill. This is the reverse way that we normally go, so it is a short Cat 5 hill getting UP to the ridge with beautiful views (hopefully) of the Wapack Mountain range. 

Then we zoom down to the Squannacook River valley and back to the start. I probably can't stay for lunch, but there is Clover Farm Store nearby and Filho's in Groton Center.
