Change of Plans - Minuteman Bikeway on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

I'm sorry to keep changing the plans, but the weather just hasn't been cooperating with me! I scouted the "Harvard Hills" route this afternoon, and between the snow, tree limbs, and downed power lines, it just doesn't seem like a good idea.

The Minuteman Bikeway from Bedford to Somerville is in pretty good shape. We can use a modified Friday sort of schedule, where people who want to stop for lunch at Dave's Fresh Pasta in Davis Square can enjoy a sidewalk picnic (if its warm enough), and people who need to get back early can turn around at Alewife.

The weather for tomorrow looks Sunny, but Windier and Chillier than today. It should be low 40s and a tail wind going in. In the afternoon it will be upper 40s and a head wind going back.

Note the 10:00 AM starting time. BTW, the bathrooms at the starting point parking lot were open today, but there are no guarantees. The route is about 22 miles, all paved, and essentially flat. Its a good way to rack up some miles without killing ourselves, and we get delicious sandwiches from Dave's Fresh Pasta.

On Friday, November 4th, we will meet in Bedford at the Minuteman Bikeway Parking.
  • At 10:00 AM - The Fitness Ride will leave from the Minuteman Rail Trail Parking in Bedford. Here is a map.
  • At 11:30 AM - LUNCH at Dave's Fresh Pasta in Somerville.
  • At 12:30 PM - We will head back to Bedford.
  • At 2:30 PM - We should be back to the Minuteman Rail Trail Parking.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
