This Week - Chelmsford - Woonsocket - Sterling

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, after the events of this week, we REALLY, REALLY need a nice bike ride! Fortunately, I have 4 rides planned for this week.

The weather isn't looking picture perfect this week, but so far there is no rain in the forecast.

The Monday rides will start in Chelmsford Center and ride the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail toward Carlisle and Great Brook Farm State Park or the Cranberry Bog (which seems to be in blossom).

On Monday, April 22nd - Chelmsford Center.
AR Index - Roughly equal to 15 flat, smooth miles.

LUNCH - TBD, unless someone has a better idea, Brickhouse Center Sports Grill.

On Wednesday, April 24th -Woonsocket, RI - Blackstone River Bikeway

Another new ride you ask? Yup, it's also well outside out 1/2 hour drive from Groton "rule", but it's worth it. Because some people will need to get back for kid duty, we will have (optional) LUNCH after the ride. Bring a snack.
