Friday: Elm Street Playground, West Acton

Dear AdventuRiders,

What a dilemma! Loon Mountain opens tomorrow and lift tickets are only $29. Oh well, there is only one trail open top to bottom...

Anyhow, I have an interesting ride planned for tomorrow. We will ride to Bolton, past the Stow golf courses, along the future Assebet River Rail Trail, through the Assebet River National Wildlife Refuge, and around the old mill buildings in Maynard. Whew! BTW, the PortaPotty is still at the starting point as of this afternoon.

The route is about 29 miles and relatively flat. The weather you ask? My best guess is Partly Cloudy, light North breeze, and about 40 degrees when we leave and mid 40s when we get back.

Idylwilde Farms took their picnic tables away, so I guess they are out for lunch. Our fearless great lunch place finder is back from NYC, and I found a place in West Acton called "The Local Table".
