Reminder - Westminster on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

I thought we had great weather on our Wednesday seacoast ride!

But on Friday ... How does low 50s when we leave (bring a coat) and low 60s when we return, all under bright blue SUNNY skies and light breezes sound?

Lunch will be at The Angler in Westminster. I'm told the fish is fresh and very tasty and I've found the Grilled Black Angus Burger to be good as well, especially with the sweet potato fries.

BTW, to get to the starting point, get off Route 2 (exit 25) and take Route 2A into Westminster. When you see the red "Westminster Cracker" building, turn sharp left just BEFORE the building and drive up the hill to the gazebo. Oh, and the last time I checked there was a PortaPotty and it was unlocked.

Don't worry about registering yet, some of the Recreation Departments haven't got their Fall schedules posted yet.

As a reminder, you MUST have an approved bicycle helmet, and you MUST pump up your tires! You will also need to initial and sign our Release and Waiver of Liability.

On Friday, September 6th - 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.

This ride has everything, goats, mountains, lakes, rivers, views, swimming holes, and a yummy lunch afterwards. If only I could fit an ocean into this ride ...

There are a couple of Category 5 hills on the ride, but we've never really noticed the first one and the second is reasonably short (and there is no shame in walking).
  • 9:30 AM - The Fitness Ride will leave.
  • 1:00 PM - We should be back.
  • Starting Point Map - Westminster Bandshell
  • Route Map - Westminster - Princeton - Hubbardston
  • Distance - 26 miles
  • Elevation Gain - 850 feet (more difficult)
  • Unpaved - 2 miles - a few very rough spots
  • Equipment - I plan to bring my ROAD bike.
AR Index - roughly equal to 35 flat, smooth miles.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
