Reminder - NH Seacoast - Portsmouth on Wednesday

Dear AdventuRiders,

The Portsmouth weather for Wednesday is looking very nice! It is forecast to be near 50 degrees, mostly SUNNY, with a WNW breeze (mostly an off-shore cross wind) when we leave. On the way back it should be Partly Cloudy, near 60 degrees, with a light WSW breeze.
I am going to move the start time to 9:30 AM so we won't be in a rush. Also, by leaving at 9:30 we can get to Portsmouth before noon and beat the lunch crowd.

Here are some possibilities for lunch:
  1. Pub lunch with fresh microbrew beer (and yummy mussels in butter sauce) at the Portsmouth Brewery.
  2. Lunch on the deck overlooking Portsmouth Harbor at River House Restaurant.
  3. Lighter fare at Popovers on the sidewalk in bustling Market Square.
Surprisingly, lunch is not the highlight of the trip! The NH seacoast, the Isle of Shoals, and New Castle are among the most beautiful places in NE.

If people are interested in carpooling, RSVP and I will put you in touch with other interested riders.
