Reminder - Lake Potanipo on Wednesday

Dear AdventuRiders,

The weather is looking pretty decent tomorrow, considering its November. Mostly Cloudy, mid 50s when we leave and near 60 degrees and still Mostly Cloudy when we return.

I changed the ride a bit to avoid the freshly graded Federal Hill Road and substitute a beautiful walk through the woods to get to Monson Center. I also found a new portion of the Potanipo Rail Trail that we will try out.

There are 2 category 5 hills (easiest category). The first one happens early in the ride and we will find some sculptures near the top of the hill. The second one we will be walking through the woods to Monson Center.

The bad news is that I found NO portapotties on the route. Be prepared.

On Wednesday, November 5th - Lake Potanipo, Brookline, NH.

We will cross the 100 year old suspension bridge over the Souhegan River in Milford and pass the Granite Town Rail Trail (not very bikeable) before stopping for lunch at Chrysanthi's Restaurant. If you want to skip lunch, its just a couple of miles straight down Route 13 back to the start.

  • 1:30 PM - Non-lunching people should be back.
