Reminder - Hopkinton on Wednesday

Dear AdventuRiders,

The weather is looking really nice tomorrow, Mostly Sunny, 50s, but windy in the afternoon.

The original route I planned with the Upper Charles River Rail Trail was flooded this afternoon from the rain last night, so I planned an alternate route from Hopkinton. We will still follow the first few miles of the Marathon Route before we go to a much more scenic area.

Hopkinton is a pretty little town, but it is at the top of the hill, so it will be easy in the morning, but a climb to get back. I haven't finished the route yet, but it will be around 30 miles with about 1500 feet of climbing according to the new MapMyRide calculation. I would guess it will be similar to Monday afternoon's ride except twice as far.

Lunch is TBD.

On Wednesday, April 9th - Hopkinton Center
  • 9:30 AM - The Exploration Ride will leave.
  • 2:30 PM - We should be back.
  • Starting Point Map - Hopkinton Center.
  • Route Map - Hopkinton - Whitehall
  • Distance - 30 miles
  • Elevation Gain - 1500 feet
  • Unpaved - Probably None
  • Equipment - I plan to bring my ROAD bike.
  • AR Index - roughly equal to 40 flat, smooth miles.
NOTE: MapMyRide has changed how they calculate elevation gain, so the AR Index is likely to be greater than before. Don't be intimidated...

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
