Friday: Leominster State Forest

Dear AdventuRiders,

Now that you are (hopefully) in a turkey coma, its a good time to remind you to work off the gluttony tomorrow :-)

The weather even looks good, Mostly Sunny and 40 degrees in the morning and about 50 when we get back.

We will meet at the composting toilet equipped parking area for Leominster State Forest on Route 31 just a couple miles south of Route 2. Look for the "Entering Princeton" sign on the left.

From there. we will ride south to Holden. Those of you who came on the Meadowbrook Orchards Fitness Ride will recognize the beautiful rolling farmland and forests. Then its UP, UP, UP with great views from Sholan Farms and Grand View Country Club before we get back to Leominster State Forest. A couple miles of unpaved fire road will take us past Rocky Pond to the starting point.

LUNCH? - I'm open for suggestions. There is always The Old Mill Restaurant for an "early bird special", but throughly unique and rustic New England experience.
