Reminder - Lancaster on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

The Friday forecast is looking terrible at this point, but since I screwed up on Monday, I will ride if at all possible. I didn't spend much time on this email since we did these rides before in 2010, but they are still beautiful rides!

We only have 1 week left in our Spring 2014 season. Many of our riders, including Carole, are going to be away tomorrow, so I am counting on everyone to get out and enjoy our last few Spring rides.

 We will meet in South Lancaster at Atlantic Union College (NOT the baseball field in Lancaster that we used last time). Here is a map. The college is KAPUT, so we shouldn't have a parking problem

The morning Fitness Ride will feature up close views of Wachusett Mountain, a short ride on the Mass Central Rail Trail, and scenic views of the Nashoba River Valley. The route is a little over 18 miles and very hilly with almost 700 feet vertical. It is all on road except the extremely civilized MCRT. I plan to bring my road bike. Here is a map.

The afternoon Recreation Ride will feature the beautiful farms on George Hill and Davis' Farmland on our way to the Wachusett Reservoir. We will ride along the reservoir on a civilized gravel / dirt path and visit the impressive Wachusett Dam (largest hand built dam in the world) and enjoy the fountain. The route is 14 1/2 miles with one significant hill and a little over 400 feet vertical. I plan to bring my road bike. Here is a map.

On Friday, June 13th, we will meet at Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster. Here is a map.
  • At 9:30 AM - The Fitness Ride will leave for Sterling. Here is a map.
  • At 11:30 AM - Lunch will be BYOL, or at Trolley Stop Pizzaria (a couple blocks away).
  • At 12:30 PM - The Recreation Ride will leave for the Wachusett Dam. Here is a map.
  • At 2:30 PM - We will be back.

Hope to see you there,
Bill and Carole
