GO - East Pepperell Center

Another Bike Ride on Monday?

Dear AdventuRiders,

The Fall biking season continues on, although it looks like Monday could be the end :-( I attached a picture from last Friday's ride.

The forecast calls for Mostly Cloudy :-( but relatively warm :-) It should be mid 40s when we leave and mid 50s when we get back with little wind.

So I thought we could start in East Pepperell Center and do a tour of Mine Falls Park in Nashua and then have lunch at Dolce Italian Grill in Pepperell.

The route will take us across the new covered bridge and on to the Nissitissit River and UP to views from Blood Road on the border with Hollis before we descend to follow the Nashua River to Nashua and back. I'm not planning to actually go into downtown Nashua, but just stay in Mine Falls Park for almost 5 miles of easy, car-free off road. After a flat but boring trip on Route 111, we will take the newly reopened Nashua River Rail Trail back to East Pepperell.

On Monday, December 5th - East Pepperell Center
  • The "Extra Innings Ride" will leave East Pepperell Center at 9:30 AM.
  • We will return by 12:30 PM.
  • Starting Point Map - East Pepperell Center.
  • Route Map - East Pepperell - Mine Falls Park.
  • Distance - 23 miles.
  • Elevation Gain - 350 feet (about as easy as you can get in NH).
  • Unpaved - 7 miles (very smooth).
  • Equipment - I think I will bring my hybrid bike, just for the heck of it.
AR Index - Roughly 27 flat, paved miles.

Lunch will be at Dolce Wood Fired Italian Grill in Pepperell.

Hope to see you there,
Bill (and maybe Carole)

GO - Lunenburg Center

Happy Birthday Ellen!

Reminder - Lunenburg Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

We've never done a December ride before, but if you liked today, tomorrow is supposed to be the same except slightly "warmer". It should be SUNNY and low 40s with little wind when we leave and upper 40s when we get back. I think the rule of thumb would be about 4 layers.

We will start off towards Lake Whalom on Sunny Hill Road and enjoys the views from the top. Then its off to Lake Shirley and Flat Hill (it isn't) to enjoy some more views. From there we will ride around Hickory Hills Lake on our way back to Lunenburg Road. You may notice the word "hill" used very often in the description, but its not as bad as it sounds and the views should be especially nice tomorrow.

We can have lunch and Birthday Party for Ellen afterwards at Bangkok Hill - Original Thai Cuisine.

On Friday, December 2nd - Lunenburg
  • The Birthday Ride will leave at 9:30 AM.
  • We should be back by 12:30 PM.
  • Starting Point Map - Lunenburg Center.
  • Route Map - Lunenburg to Flat Hill & Alpacas.
  • Distance = 23 miles.
  • Elevation Gain = 600 feet (2 significant hills).
  • Unpaved = none.
  • Equipment = Any sturdy, well maintained bike will work.
AR Index = Roughly 29 flat, paved miles.

Hope to see you there,

Friday 12/02 - Bike Ride and Birthday Party

Dear Adventuriders,

It looks like good weather on Friday and it is Ellen's Birthday! So I am planning a 23 mile-ish ride around Lunenburg with lunch at Bangkok Hill Thai Restaurant (yummy).

Stay tuned for more details.
