Reminder - Westminster on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

I have multiple conflicts with tomorrows ride, but never fear, my lovely and talented sweep Carole will be leading the ride. Here is a link to the map and cue sheet. You basically turn right except for 2 corners.

The bad news is the weather is looking very wet, and I'm a bit concerned that the dirt road portion of the ride could be flooded :-(

There is a PortaPotty at the Starting Point, and last time I checked it wasn't locked. There are no other facilities along the route, so plan accordingly.

I will make the call on the weather before 8:00 AM tomorrow morning.

On Friday, June 14th - Westminster

Get ready for a gorgeous ride around Mount Wachusett. It's a bit outside our 30 minute starting point radius around Groton, but Route 2 is pretty quick.

The Fitness Ride will take us west to the Mount Wachusett region. We will start in Westminster, climb UP toward the west shoulder of Mount Wachusett on some scenic backroads before zooming DOWN to beautiful views at Princeton. From there we ride to Gardner passing many lakes before turning back to Westminster. There are a couple of significant hills at the beginning of the ride including a Cat 5 (easiest category) as we pass the mountain. From there it is rolling hills back to Westminster.
  • 9:30 AM - The Fitness Ride will leave.
  • 1:00 PM - We should be back.
  • Starting Point Map - Westminster Bandshell
  • Route Map - Westminster - Princeton
  • Distance - 23 miles
  • Elevation Gain - 750 feet (more difficult)
  • Unpaved - 1/2 mile - a few very rough spots
  • Equipment - I plan to bring my ROAD bike.
AR Index - roughly equal to 32 flat, smooth miles.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
