This Week - Carlisle - Portsmouth - Veteran's Day

Dear AdventuRiders,

The good news is that the weather forecast looks FANTASTIC for Monday! Sunny skies, 40s to start the day and near 60 in the afternoon with little wind. The bad news is that the PortaPotties are starting to disappear for the season. 

We will meet in a little park just north of the Carlisle Center rotary (the PortaPotty at Fern's is gone). Here is a map. Please DO NOT park at Fern's. If the parking lot is full, there is another parking lot at Carlisle Town Hall just around the corner. 

The morning ride will feature a visit to Heart Pond (also missing their PortaPotty) on our way to Great Brook Farm State Park (and their first class porcelain). After our rest stop, we will explore the back roads of Carlisle on our way back to the Center.

The afternoon ride will zoom down to the Olde North Bridge in Concord. There is also first class porcelain at the Visitor's Center for our afternoon rest stop. Then we will ride the back roads of Concord, Acton, and Carlisle on the way back.
