This Week - Chelmsford Center - Gloucester - Groton Center

Dear AdventuRiders,

The weather isn't looking picture perfect tomorrow, so I changed the starting point to Chelmsford Center so we could have a dry lunch anyway. The "Few Showers" forecast is often wrong. The rest of the forecast shows low 60s in the morning and mid 60s in the afternoon.

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.
