SummeRide #1 - FINALLY - Monday, July 22nd - Groton Center

Dear AdventuRiders,

FINALLY the HOT and HUMID weather has quit for a while, but the humidity is supposed to be back soon. So, let's take advantage of it while we can. We also need to celebrate the opening of the New Fitch's Bridge over the Nashua River. 

Let's meet in Groton Center at 9:30 AM and ride to Pepperell on the Rail Trail and (optionally) jump into the Nissitissit River. From there we will ride UP to Heald Pond for a refreshing swim in a hilltop glacial pond. Then it's UP and DOWN to Bertozzi for a dip in the Squannacook River. On the way back we will cross the New Fitch's Bridge before returning to Groton Center for lunch at Filho's Cantina.

Hopefully I get my bike put back together and I'm not too out of shape.
