Reminder - Hudson - Horseshoe Pub Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, the Wednesday forecast is looking better. Currently, they are saying Mostly SUNNY, upper 40s in the morning and mid 50s when we return, and light winds.

We will ride through Hudson and Marlboro to get to Westboro Center after visiting the Wachusett Aquaduct crossing of the Assebet River. I was hoping to ride through the old Wesboro State Mental Hospital, but I got unceremoniously tossed out today :-( We will stop at Chauncey Lake for an extended break at mile 13. I cut out the ride around the lake since it is quite rough.

From there it is off to a corner of Southboro before climbing up to Marlboro. I cut out the Cat 5 hill up to Jerico Hill Ski Area, and the "exciting" trip through downtown Marlboro. Instead we will be ride some urban streets in Marlboro (WATCH OUT for CAR DOORS!). Then we hit the Assebet River Rail Trail for an almost 4 mile, mostly downhill ride back to the Hudson.

Lunch will be at The Horseshoe Pub in Hudson with 80 beers on tap.
