Reminder - Westminster Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Get ready for a gorgeous ride around Mount Wachusett. Carole, Eddie and I did this ride last June and it shot right up to the Top 10 Ride category! Its a bit outside our 30 minute starting point radius around Groton, but Route 2 is pretty quick and I adjusted the starting  time accordingly.

The weather forecast is for Mostly Sunny, 47 degrees, and windy when we leave. It should be Sunny, 50 degrees, and still windy when we return. Bring something warm and a definitely a wind layer. It will be a cross wind much of the time, but a tail wind the last 4 miles.

On Friday, April 27th -Westminster

The Fitness Ride will take us west to the Mount Wachusett region. We will start in Westminster, climb UP toward
the west shoulder of Mount Wachusett on some scenic backroads before zooming DOWN to beautiful views at Princeton. From there we ride to Gardner passing many lakes before turning back to Westminster. There are a couple of significant hills at the beginning of the ride including a Cat 5 (easiest category) as we pass the mountain. From there it is rolling hills back to Westminster.
  • The Exploration Ride will leave at 9:45 AM.
  • Starting Point Map - Westminster Bandshell
  • Route Map - Westminster - Wachusett
  • Distance - 23 1/2 miles
  • Elevation Gain - 750 feet (more difficult)
  • Unpaved - 1/2 mile - some rough spots
  • Equipment - I plan to bring my ROAD bike.
AR Index = roughly 31 flat, paved miles.

Here is the schedule:
    • 9:45 AM - The Exploration Ride leaves.
    • 12:45 PM - We will be back to Westminster.

    We can have lunch at the Old Mill Restaurant in Westminster.

    Hope to see you there,
    Bill and Carole
