Welcome to our 18th Season!

Dear AdventuRiders,
Carole and I have been busy getting ready for our 18th season of AdventuRides (and "they" said it would never last :-)

So this is a good time to look over your bike and get it tuned up if necessary, and be sure the tires are in good condition and INFLATED PROPERLY.

You can also register at the following Recreation Departments:
NOTE: First time riders can try us out and their first ride is FREE.

Acton Recreation - page 25.

Littleton Recreation - coming soon.

We also need everyone to initial and sign a copy of our Waiver of Liability. You can print it out here, or I will have copies with me.

Most importantly, REMEMBER YOUR HELMET!

The weather is not looking great for Wednesday, but hope springs eternal!

On Wednesday, September 5th - Boxboro 

This is one of my favorite rides. Its scenic, challenging, and has a two mile downhill run through Harvard. Of course that means that there are some uphills too, but the one category 5 (easiest category) hill we have is mostly just long and not that steep. 

The route is about 27 1/2 miles long and 800 feet vertical with most of the elevation gain in the first hill, although it is uphill back to the starting point too. It is all on road and I plan to bring my road bike.

Lunch is at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson.
  • At 9:30 AM the Exploration Ride will leave.
  • We will return by 2:30 PM.
  • Starting Point Map. We will meet at the Soccer Fields on Liberty Square Road. PortaPotty equipped.
  • Route MapBoxboro - Harvard - Hudson.
  • Distance = 27.5 Miles.
  • Elevation Gain = 800 feet (more challenging).

  • Equipment = I plan to bring my road bike.
AR Index = Roughly 35 flat, paved miles.

On Friday, September 7th - East Pepperell - Nashua
    This route starts off as one of my fairly standard, but still scenic, routes to Hollis NH. From there we head to Nashua on some beautiful, mostly downhill back roads. Then its a bit more uphill to avoid the boring residential areas of Nashua before we get to Mine Falls Park. We will ride along the river to Downtown Nashua before turning back to ride along the canal back to Mine Falls. From there, it is a fairly boring ride along Route 111 (very nice wide shoulder) to the Nashua River Rail Trail and back to East Pepperell.
    • The Fitness Ride will leave at 9:30 AM.
    • We should return by 12:30 PM.
    • Starting Point Map - East Pepperell Center.
    • Route Map - East Pepperell - Nashua.
    • Distance - 27 miles.
    • Elevation Gain - 550 feet (moderate) - mostly at the beginning of the ride.
    • Unpaved - 6 miles - mostly smooth dirt and no cars.
    • Equipment - Any well maintained bike will work. I plan to bring my road bike.
    AR Index - Roughly equal to 31 flat, paved miles.

    Optional Lunch afterwards at Lunch at Dolce Wood - Fired Italian Grill.

    Hope to see you there,
    Bill and Carole
