Reminder - Meadowbrook Orchards in Sterling Tomorrow

Dear AdventuRiders,

The weather is looking pretty good for tomorrow's ride, Partly Cloudy and mid 50s when we leave and Sunny and mid 60s when we return. 

I'm going to take it a bit easy tomorrow since I'm planning to ride 100 miles on Saturday. Its still a hilly ride, not unlike Westminster last week, but I'll try to slow it down.

On Friday, September 21st - Meadowbrook Orchards - Sterling

We will do a few miles on the wide shoulder of Route 62 to practice for the Seacoast Century before we start the climb to East Princeton. There is a Cat 5 (easiest category) climb to Justice Hill Road, but I have tried to minimize the "pain" by sticking to scenic backroads whenever possible. There are stunning views of Wachusett Mountain along the way back as we travel quiet roads to Holden and back to Sterling. Lunch is at Meadowbrook Orchards. If you are so inclined, you can go out and pick a peck of apples too.

Please park at the far end of the parking lot so their regular customers don't have to walk.
