Change of Plans - Groton Center on Wednesday

Dear AdventuRiders,

I just checked the Portsmouth forecast, and its been "upgraded" to Cloudy, Chilly, with a NE wind off the water. It still doesn't sound like it's worth the drive, so I've changed the ride to "Blah, Blah, Blah, Filho's". Its the same ride Eddie and I did 2 weeks ago (sorry Eddie).

It's 62 degrees and raining in Groton right now, while the forecast was for upper 70s and cloudy. Tomorrow's forecast is for mid 60's and cloudy. I guess we'll see.

On Wednesday, October 3rd - 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.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
