Reminder - Sterling Center on Friday

Dear AdventuRiders,

Well, if you believe the weatherman, Friday looks like a TOP 10 sort of day with bright blue skies and temperatures from the low 50s to the low 60s! So, I've planned a couple of rides featuring the Mass Central Rail Trail starting in Sterling, MA.

As you are traveling through Sterling Center on Route 62 West, when you see this view out your windshield,

turn LEFT and follow the rail trail signs.

On Friday, September 19th

    The Morning Fitness Ride will take us on a bit of the Mass Central Rail Trail , the true story of "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and a visit to the Wachusett Dam.
    • The Morning Fitness Ride will leave at 9:30 AM.
    • We should be back by 11:30 AM.
    • Starting Point Map - Sterling.
    • Route Map - Sterling - Wachusett - Clinton.
    • Distance - 15 miles.
    • Elevation Gain - 700 feet (more difficult).

    The Afternoon Recreation Ride will explore the Mass Central Rail Trail to Holden and we will return the same way since it is such a nice trail.
