Change of Plans - Groton Center Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

Due to the less than "sterling" weather forecast for tomorrow, I am changing the ride to start in Groton Center. It should have stopped raining by 9:30 tomorrow morning, but there will still be a stiff NW wind. The new ride will go into the wind on the way out, and have a tailwind on the way back. The forecast calls for Cloudy and 60 degrees when we leave and Partly Cloudy and mid 60s when we return.

On Wednesday, September 19th - Groton Center

This ride travels along the Squannacook River toward Townsend, passes the Cowdry Nature Center and Hickory Hills Lake in Lunenburg before stopping to visit the Alpacas. From there we will ride past Lake Shirley to the old Fort Devens for a short tour and then to the Nashua River Rail Trail back to Groton.

Lunch is at Filho's Cucina.
  • 9:30 AM - the Exploration ride will leave.
  • 12:30 PM - we should be back.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
